Default Black IPA help

Hello,

I'm looking at making a black ipa and was wondering how much DME to use. Right now I'm looking at 5lb batch- 6lb dark DME, .5lb caramel 80, .5lb midnight wheat and 6oz of various hops

I was thinking of adding a lb of corn sugar. (Sorry the post looks sloppy, my phone is junk)

I just made this Black IPA in AG form last night, and it has promise to be one major bad ass with an OG of 1.080. The link below is a review, and the Extract recipe. I would give you the link to MidWest, but this is a seasonal kit from them. Hope it helps for ideas.

I second the corn sugar and I would crank up the dark DME to 9 lb. don't be afraid to dry hop the crap out of it, I do 4 oz in my black IPAs
