Default English IPA

Hello this is my second post and I have brewed about 20gals so far and I have thought about moving to all grain but i have decided to better my extract brewing first and just upgrade my current equipment and maybe do some partial mash. I live in an apartment so electric is the only route. Any way this is my first attempt at designing a recipe.

3 lbs Amber Liquid Extract (12.5 SRM) Extract
6 lbs Pale Liquid Extract (8.0 SRM) Extract
1 lbs Amber Malt (22.0 SRM) Specialty Grain
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt (40.0 SRM) Specialty Grain
2.00 oz Target [11.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop
1.00 oz Bramling Cross [6.00 %] - Boil 10.0 min Hop
1.0 pkg European Ale Yeast (Wyeast Labs #1338) [ Yeast 7


I have read that English IPA have more malt flavor than hops so an ideas or corrections would be appreciated

Thanks!

Ok, my thoughts.
I presume you will use an English yeast such as WLP002, WLP022 (I like this one) or what not?

You might consider dropping the liquid Amber and replace it with some of the Muntons or any other Maris Otter extract. Or replace all the Amber and Pale with M.O. extract.
That being said, I am not a huge fan of overly sweet beer.
I like your hop selection.
You might consider dry hopping with the Brambling as well or with some EKG or Fuggles or Willamette.

Cheers and good luck with your upcoming beer!

The first thing to do is get rid of the "amber liquid extract" and replace it with pale. Then, you can add caramel malt if you want more than the 8 oz of the 20L in the steep. Biscuit malt is nice in small doses, but I think 1 pound is way too much for an English IPA.

For hops, I'd add more hops late in the boil, and particularly like East Kent Goldings at 15/0 minutes in the boil.

1.5 LBs of Caramel or crystal is rather high for your 9 or so LBs of malt base (at least for my taste). That being said, there is nothing like doing and learning to figure out what you like and what ingredients do. I am a big fan of the target and Goldling hops. And if you end up liking the extra sweetness in the brew (from the high crystal additions), well, that is all that really matters (you are brewing for yourself after all).

Cheers and good luck on your brew.
