Definitely one of my favorite brews as well. Had one batch not attenuate as low as I wanted it to, but still had the carbonation in the ball park of where I wanted it. Scale it down to a 6gal batch and give it a try.

Cool idea but just for the record, quoted from Mike:

"As the hops start to drop off a little in your lower OG beer it will probably come more into balance. The Tasty APA uses a lot of hop additions because it originated as a light version of Pliny The Elder. In fact, it originated as a 25/75 blend of Pliny The Elder and a Dortmunder Export. I then "blended" the recipes together and that's why the beer has so much Pilsner malt. As I often recommend when making the Tasty APA, you may want to come up with a simpler hop bill."

I have this fermenting right now, can't wait to try it.
