Default Another Nugget IPA

This weekend i plan on brewing a SMASHish Nugget IPA. Its a basic recipe to help me get to know Nugget. I have never used the hop and also since its in leaf form which i also havent used it will be fun.

Here is the recipe.
5.5gal
7lbs 2 row
2lbs white wheat
1lb C20

I am thinking of doing a 120min boil.

1oz 60min
0.5oz 30min
0.5oz 15min

May add some gypsum to boost the hop flavor.

Ferment with WLP001.

2oz of hop seems very low for an IPA.

I use Nugget for bittering and used in with Cascade in my last black IPA as flavor additions @15, 10, 5. It was good with the Cascades but Nugget alone is a very strong spicy hop...smells wonderful but I would personally want to add some Cascade late in the boil and dry hop.

Most American IPA's use no less than 5 oz of hops in 5.5 gallon batches. I use 6.5 oz in my Cascade/Centennial/Citra IPA's and the aroma/flavor is awesome! I find the flavor/aroma right if I use 3-4 times more hops in the last 5 minutes of boil and as dry hop than I do for bittering! So if I bitter with 1oz I would use 3-4 oz of additional hops in the last 5 min of boil and as dry hop. 2-3oz in dry hop in 5.5 gallons makes a huge difference.

Beersmith says i should be around 55IBU's which is to style of an American IPA.
I also dont want something that is going to kill my friends with bitterness.

Use a claculator to find the IBU contribution of your additions. Move the 30 to flameout, and think about moving some of the bitter to later, depending on how much you need eto get your desired bitterness. You also need some for dry-hopping.

But what isn't measure in IBU is hop flavor and aroma. An American IPA has lots of both which you aren't getting with low amounts of late additions.

Exactly!

Bitterness without hop flavor and aroma is a pretty poor tasting IPA. The hops you add with 0-5 minutes left in the boil and as dry hop do not add to the IBU's they only add flavor and hop aroma!

I just looked at my first IPA recipe which turned out awesome, even my wife loved it...and it had 6.5 ounces of hops in 5.5 gallons but only had 60 IBU's. Because 3 ounces of those hops were added toward the end of the boil and 2 ounces were dry hop.

I made a Pale Ale using only Nugget hops and the beer turned out excellent. In this case I would move the 15 to 5 and 30 to 15 and increase to 1 oz each
For my pale ale i went 3/4 oz at 60, 3/4 oz at 15 and 3/4 oz at 5 and the IBU was 46 about right for an APA. For an IPA I would consider an ounce at each addition if your AA is about 14% that will get you 61 IBU

For that batch size, I'd use at least 7 oz. total hops... minimum. Kiss aroma and overall hop character goodbye if you only use 2 oz total.

If you want smooth, low IBUs... bitter to 25-30 IBUs early then pound it out late at 10-5-0-DH.

Also, your crystal malt is currently set to 10%. Reduce that to about 5-6% tops. This will allow the hops to shine more and be more IPA worthy.

Ok how about this hopping schedule. I only have 4oz of Nugget leaf hops which is why i was conservative.

1oz 60min
1oz 15min
1oz 5min
1oz dry hop 7 days

For lowly bittered, higher aroma with only 4 oz. available:

0.50 oz. @ 60
1.50 oz. @ 15
2.00 oz. @ dryhop

or

0.75-1.00 oz. @ 60
1.00-1.25 oz. @ 0
2.00 oz. @ dryhop
