The 4 oz cascade is in the hopback. I believe he has advised people without a hopback to use 1 oz at flameout. He doesn't think he gets a ton of aroma from the hopback, he uses it for trub removal.
I've never used a hopback so I assume Tasty knows what's up.
Personally I would rather just brew the IIPA and the helles* and blend the two to get this (then you have 3 beers from two brewdays). People love this recipe though.
*That's what this is, a helles and IIPA grainbill mixed in a certain proportion and IIPA hops scaled in the same proportion based on successful blending of the base beers. That is why the grainbill is kinda odd.
