Sounds yummy. I made mine with 2-row pale, debittered black (like dehusked carafa), and crystal 90. Next time, I'll add carapils. But the black should help with head retention. 80 IBUs is nice. I was near that. I think you will have a tasty brew!

I thought de-bittered black too, but looks good!

I'm not really sure the point of the 45 minute and 30 minute addition. I'd move those later in the boil to match up with the later addition. I'd also double if not triple flameout and dry hop.....

I'd ditch the Cara-Pils as you'll have plenty of head retention from the other malts. I'd also change the Carafa II for Carafa III Special.

The 45 and 30 minute additions aren't very useful. Drop them, make up the difference in IBUs with a larger 60 minute addition then beef up the late hops and dry hopping. I'd dry hop with a full 3oz.

Another vote for adjusting your hop schedule. Drop the 45/30 but I wouldn't adjust the 60. More late hop additions and totally up your dry hop to a minimum of 2 oz. I've been playing with my CDA and I'm creeping up towards 4ozs of dry hop.

1.00 lb Carafa III (525.0 SRM) Grain 5.97 %
0.75 lb Caramel Malt - 60L (Briess) (60.0 SRM) Grain 4.48 %
2.50 oz Nugget [13.00 %] (60 min) Hops 80.6 IBU
2.00 oz Centennial [9.10 %] (Dry Hop 5 days) Hops -
2.00 oz Centennial [9.10 %] (5 min) Hops 9.0 IBU
2.00 oz Cascade [5.70 %] (1 min) Hops 1.1 IBU

I would call it something other than Black India PALE Ale. Maybe American Black Ale?
