Hop Bursted White IPA- Cascade, Citra, Simcoe
I am looking for some input on this white Ipa recipe I came up with. I've been wanting to a hop bursted Ipa for quite sometime. Since I just got a nice supply of Citra and Simcoe from Farmhouse Brewing, I figured now is as good of time as ever. I'm not really sure on the Vienna and Munich amounts yet. I do want a slight breadiness of the vienna and sweetness of munich with the added color. Here is what I have so far using beersmith. Any suggestions are welcome.

I'm not sure yet on how I want to dry hop yet. Either all at once for 7-10 days or splitting the 3oz over a few days.
That's a ton of hops for a moderate gravity beer, but I can't see anything glaringly wrong with the recipe. Love all those hops and appreciate that you didn't use the rare ones for bittering. Hopbursting FTW!
Yea it is a ton of hops considering the malt profile. One thing I'm worried about is that there won't be enough malt backbone and I'm afraid to end up with hop soup. I also wasn't planning on a 60min addition but I want some up front bitterness that may not come with the later additions. So I guess it's technically not hop bursting but pretty close.
I was thinking about dry hopping the same as you (1oz each Simcoe, Citra, Cascade). How would you describe the result? Thanks!!!
