Default All-Grain IIPA

So, I'm getting ready to brew my first All-Grain batch of beer. I'm brewing with a buddy that has used that method for a while. I showed him my recipe to get his two cents and I wanted to get some other opinions as well. I created this recipe myself and feel as if it is well put together for my personal tastes. I love big hop flavor, bitterness and aroma. I would much rather have that in an IIPA than a super malty sugary bomb. Anyway, here is the recipe:

Boil: 6.25 gallons

Mash at 156 degrees for 1 hour
Sparge with 162 degree water

Grains

15LBS American 2-row
1LBS Carapils
8oz Crystal 30
8oz Caramel 10

Hop Schedule

1oz Columbus @60
2oz Cascade @15
2oz Centennial @15
1.5oz Columbus @15
1oz Cascade @flameout (Steep 10 minutes)
1oz Centennial @flameout (Steep 10 minutes)

Dry Hop

2oz Cascade
1oz Centennial

Yeast

Trappist High Gravity Yeast or Safale 05 (two packets rehydrated)

Primary 10-12 days
Secondary 5-7 days with dry hop

The OG that I came up with was 1.096
FG should be about 1.023

Any assistance on hop scheduling would be enjoyed. Also, what yeast would you choose and why? Thanks in advance! Cheers!

Default Types of Yeast

I've been reading that 2 packets of Safeale-05 yeast would really help this out. Clean, crisp and lowers gravity to a much better level than any liquid yeast. Thoughts??

Having an OG that high, yes you will want two packets, or at least 1 1/2. That yeast will be just fine, it's a nice clean yeast for pale ales, ipas, etc.

My Malty says gives the following yeast recommendations and I've have ordered them beginning with the most appealing option to me if I was brewing this beer:

Option 1 - 2 Wyeast packs, 1000 mL starter on my stir plate for 18 hours

Option 2 - 2 Wyeast packs, 2700 mL starter, no stir plate

Option 3 - 1.6 US-05 11.5 gram dry yeast

Option 4 - 3.5 Wyeast packs, no starter

Thanks for the input. I'm hoping to get the alcohol above 9% (hence the high gravity). I'm assuming with this recipe a 75% efficiency with the mash. The IBU calculated out to about 110. I felt that the high IBU level was very balance with the hops I chose.

Thanks! I'm still new to the different types of yeast. I've used Safeale 05 on a Brown Ale. Everything else has been Wyeast (usually 1056). I was looking for a yeast that would really allow the hop flavor and aroma to show through. Which would give me the best chance?

Also, what do you make of my hop schedule? Is there anything you would change or omit?

Since you're using a lot of Cascade and Centennial and have only used Wyeast 1056 American Ale I, try Wyeast 1272 American Ale II which will bring out those hops in the flavor more and a different yeast but make a starter

Well I put your build in brewer's friend recipe builder:

Am I getting a little crazy with the hops? Or am I justifiably crazy??

I always over analize things. I need a homebrew! haha

With OG at 1.094, FG 1.023 and IBU at 119 I would maybe lower the IBU but really its a recipe and I am making suggestions for an average IIPA. When making recipes you are not necessarily wanting to make something within average but maybe something that hasn't been done before. Below are two more hop schedules the first with a 99 IBU and the second with a 87 IBU. Try any of the three and next go around make adjustments to you are going for.
