Default Cascade focused IPA?

i bought a pound of cascade and columbus hops the other day because they were only like $11/lb each. i have been trying to put together an ipa that is cascade heavy so i can use some of them up (a pound is a lot haha). any thoughts on the recipe i have developed?

Batch Size: 5g
IBUs: 79.6
Color: 6.6 SRM
est OG: 1.068
est FG: 1.011
ABV: 7.5

grains:
12# pale malt 2 row
1# Caramel 20

hops:
1oz columbus (15%) @ 60min

.5oz cascade @ 20min
.25oz columbus @ 20min

.5oz cascade @ 15 min

.75oz cascade @ 10 min

.5oz cascade @ 5 min
.5oz willamette @ 5 min

.75oz cascade @ 0 min

i wasnt sure how to properly paste my beersmith recipe, so i attached it..maybe it will magically show up?

i don't see any dry-hop there... since you're creating a hop-bomb, why not add an oz cascade for dry-hopping?

i wasnt sure how to add that into the beersmith program. i actually have cut my 60 minute bittering to .5oz and that dropped overall IBUs by about 20 to something around 56 IBUs. i think this will be more agreeable. but yes, i will be dropping a couple ounces of cascade in the secondary for a week. great suggestion!

If you're making a 7.5% abv IPA you want the IBU's up at your original 79 range if not higher in my opinion.

Ground it out with the majority of your IBUs early.
Round it out with a small middle charge.
Pound it out with a huge whirlpool & dryhop.

...That's my mantra.

1.25 oz columbus @ 60 min
0.75 oz columbus @ 30 min
1.50 oz cascade @ 5 min
2.50 oz cascade @ whirlpool
1.00 oz columbus @ whirlpool
2.50 oz cascade @ dryhop
1.50 oz columbus @ dryhop

Columbus and cascade are an excellent combo for an IPA, in the right proportion rather similar to Centennial. I like Bobs hop schedule, but I tend to skip the 30 and like a small first wort addition.
