Default Falconer's Flight IPA (yet another recipe critique)

I'd like this to be a smooth drinking IPA where the flavor and aroma of the hops, rather than the bitterness, dominate.

The naked oats I thought might bring some silky smoothness, but I added just on a whim.

The 2oz at flameout I intend to do as more of a hop steep once the wort has chilled to around 160F or so.

Note I get 85% eff. with my Corona.

Thoughts?

Did you brew this yet? Sounds like a good plan to me. I'm interested to hear how it worked out. I've never deliberately steeped at a set temp. I just let the steeping happen while I'm cooling. Luckily, my immersion chiller takes forever to chill the wort, so it gives me time. :-)

Drinking a pint now. Bumped up the dry hops to 4oz. Extreme citrus nose, nice balance between the bitterness and malt, and the oats add this smooth, creaminess to the mouthfeel. I like it!
