Default Chinese IPA

Looking to brew up a "Chinese" IPA in two weeks. Below is the recipe I put together off the top of my head. Suggestions for the hop schedule is welcome. We are currently limited in grains as our supplier has only Pale Malt until the 19th of April (waiting on the boat to come in) so my brew partner is going to bring back 2# of crystal 60 (or another if you have a good suggestion and reason!)

Great feedback, guys! Thanks!
The pale malt is 100% domestic as are the qingdoa fower hops - that should be enough to consider it a Chinese IPA.
Any other insight - hop schedule, additional speciality grains?

If it was me: I would use only the Chinese hops for flavor and aroma additions. Use whatever for bittering, but I would want to really highlight the hops that make it a Chinese beer.

Good point - I'll make sure we use only qingdao flower hops for aroma and I'll keep the nugget as the bittering hop. Might need to up the QDF hops quantity to ensure a proper level of hoppiness.
Thanks Brooklyn!

It is a hop - it is called Qingdao Flower Hop, or Tsingdao Flower Hop - AA% around 6. Nice floral aroma. Brewed our celebration ale with them as the main hop a couple of weeks ago. My brew partner racked it to the secondary last night and he said the hop aroma was a bit weak, so they are not an overly strong hop (we threw in an once of whole cascade into the secondary to pick up the aroma of the CA). We'll still use nugget to bitter this beer, then throw in a ton of the Qingdao as aroma.

is it the same hops that Tsingtao uses in their beer or is named because of the Region it comes from?

Yes and yes! They use the hops in Tsingtao beer and they are from that region as well - at least I believe they are...
