Default help with ipa hop schedule

Hey all,

Plan on brewing up a 6% IPA tomorrow.

Grain bill
9.5 lb 2row
1lb Munich
.5 carapils
.5 C10

Est OG 1.058

Shooting for 55 - 60 ibis

Here is what I have:
3 oz falconer's
1 oz Columbus
2 oz Chinook
2 oz summit
3 oz centennial
2 oz simcoe
.5 oz warrior

What do you guys think for a hop schedule?

I would like to get a nice piney / resin mix with a little citrus in there

I haven't used the Chinook, summit or falconer's yet, so I have no idea what to expect.

You could try 1/2 oz. Columbus and 1/2 oz. of Chinook for bittering (First Wort Hop at 60 mins) and mix 1/2 oz. each of Simcoe, Centennial, Falconer's and Chinook (Add 1/2 oz. of this mix at 15, 10, 5, and 0 mins left in the boil). This should give you a piney/citrus flavor with some smooth bitterness.

Just my $0.02....

Cheers!

In my humble opinion I'd think the og would lead to a low abv for IPA ( I'd aim for 1.065+) but that's me.
I also like lower acid hop variety and a longer boil.
I'd say cascade, sterling, crystal, simcoe, or maybe columbus with an hour and a half or 2 hour boil. I'd try to keep it to two or three hops. With additions every 10 minutes or so.

Also, you might want to increase the Pale 2-row to around 11 lbs if you want a 6.0% IPA, unless your efficiency is awesome.

I'd add an extra pound of munich and 1/2 a pound of wheat malt instead of more 2-row.

My efficiency is good, but it looks like this will be more of an APA.

I originally wanted a sessionable ipa on the low end of the style guideline

I can cut down the ibus to 40 - 50.

I'd like to use the falconer's, Chinook, simcoe, and Columbus.

Maybe
FWH - Columbus / chinook

And then hop burst a mixture of the rest at 15, 10, 5, and flame out?

That should make a pretty good beer. It will still be around the top end of an APA and mid range of an IPA. I'm not really a style snob. I just brew stuff that might taste good to me.
