If I were you, I would just take the recipe that you brewed and tweak it a little bit. Don't be afraid to mess it up. Add a couple ounces of Cascades during the last 15-20 minutes of the boil to give it some floral notes. Also, you could try dry hopping to give it even more aroma. If you haven't dry hopped before, here is your chance to give it a run...It will make a big difference. My favorite IPA is PEAK Organic IPA. Hard to find.
