I personally would lose the Hallertauer hops. It is really not going to add much IBUs to the beer, and you can just use another .5 of NB to replace the IBUs.

Also make sure you taste test the beer often once it is on the oak. The flavor will change a lot.

When I run the number's I am getting an OG in the 1.078-1.080 range. Nothing wrong with that just a lot higher than perhaps you are looking for.

The Victory malt needs to be mashed to get anything out of it. You can drop this and lower the OG about 4 points to get it back within style.

I hope this helps out.

Ed

I agree with the above post and would also reconsider that dry hop. As dry hopping only really gives aroma, I would consider dry hopping with only half that amount (.75oz) and adding the rest in at a 30 minute addition to get some flavor and a bit of bitterness.

Of course thats my $0.02 FWIW

I also think that with an OG of 1.068-1.080 and IBU of only 46, you'll be getting more of a malt bomb than you'd like.

Not a problem at all. I try to give out honest feedback to recipes when I am asked. I get a lot of emails about creating recipes and feedback on them. I hope you don't think I was being too harsh.

I'd definitely up the hops if you want this to be an IPA...

I do like hops, and I'm assuming you do to, which is why I'd recommend upping the late addition hops and dropping the Hallertauer. Those are mainly flavor/aroma hops and not really appropriate in an IPA. If you haven't already purchased the hops, I'd go with 1 oz. of a very high alpha hop like Summit or Warrior for bittering and then 2-3 oz. of Cascade in the final 20 minutes of the boil for flavor/aroma and a few more IBU's, along with another oz. in secondary. I also agree that steeping the victory is pointless. That's my .02.

BTW, leave it in primary for at least a week, and make a starter!

cheers

What temp are you planning on mashing at?

And I agree with T-Lop on adding more hops. Kick that sucker up a bit.

To avoid the malt bomb a little I would up the hops a bit and then perhaps mash at a lower temp (maybe 150) for a longer time period (maybe 90 minutes).

This is an extract recipe w/steeping grains. No mashing required.
