Ok all, again, thanks for your advice. Plan on brewing tomorrow. To recap, I've adjusted the hop schedule with what I have on hand, altering the addition times for better use of flavor/aroma hops, while upping the IBU to 78.5 and bitterness ratio to 1.15:1. Hopefully I can score 1-2 oz's more of cascade for dry hopping in the secondary. Lastly, I'm still able to use either s-04 or s-05, and have the ability to control temp. Which one to use? I'm intrigued by the s-04, but have read that s-05 would produce a nice, clean tasting IPA. Please note updated recipe below (and attachment) and let me know if you would do anything differently (Again, grain bill is unalterable at this point). Thanks!
