I just made a 2.5 gallon quasi-AB clone in which I dry hopped with an ounce of FF- can't wait for it to carb....the smell is unreal!

What yeast are you using? If you're concerned that your beer will come out too sweet, similar to the one you speak of, use a yeast with high attenuation. Less residual sweetness left behind. Stuff like Wyeast 1056, White Labs WLP001 should do the job. Accentuate the hop character.

I ended up using US-05. Beer actually attenuated too much... Down to 1.007. First beer to get sub 10s. I believe it was because I raised the temp slowly from 65 to 69.

Putting this beer on the gas this weekend.

Nothing wrong with ending up with a stronger brew. The IPA I brewed in the end of December had an OG 1.064 and got down to 1.008. That was with WLP001. Took a taste sample when I bottled on Tuesday and it was delicious. Hopefully yours turns out great too.

1.067 to 1.007 - 90% attenuation!!! that's kinda crazy for us-05. raising from 65 to 69 would have helped attenuation, but i don't think it would have that much of an effect. any chance that you ended up mashing lower than your projected 152*F?

90% sounds awesome! But..... I forgot to update with actual original gravity. It came out to 1.052. At 1.007 it tastes good but a bit thin. Mashed at 153/152 for 60 min.

1.052 --> 1.007 = 86.5% attenuation, still pretty damn impressive.
