I like this recipe. I always aim for 1.067 OG with my American IPA. I think your BU:GU ratio is also about perfect. I usually aim a little higher though for about 75-80 ibu's since often times your hops will not have the AA content that you expect if they are more than 6 months old.

As for your hop schedule: Magnum is a clean bittering hop. I am not sure what you are going to accomplish by using it in your late hopping additions and it makes no sense as a dry hop. I would go with Magnum @ 60 min to bitter to about 50 ibu's and then use the Centennial and Chinook at 15 minutes to bring you IBU's up to 65-80 and then another once or 2 of each C-hop at flame out or whirlpool as your beer cools (160F and below) + dry hop with 1.5 oz Centennial + 1.5 oz Chinook! It is near impossible to over dry hop! West coast IPA's use about 4 oz dry hop in 5 gallons to get the aroma through the roof!

This sounds good!

Thanks for the quick feedback. I really enjoy Magnum in Sierra Nevada's Torpedo IPA and wanted to try it with Centennial. It could be the Crystal I like in Torpedo but it seems like the taste would be more apparent from Magnum. It's like a crisp clean citrus.

So if I up Magnum to 1 oz to bitter I'd get 46 IBUs and 79 total. I was thinking of upping the 2 oz of dry hops but was worried because of the high AA.

Could do 1.5 Centennial 1 Chinook and .5 Magnum.

Mash Temp is a touch high for me - like my IPAs to be a bit dry. I would also double the dry hop amount so you are at 4 ounces. But what do you want/like? Just gave us the recipe, not what you were trying to achieve

I'm fairly new so I understand that the lower the temperature the more frementable sugars but don't know how to decide what to mash at. Just picked 153 because I knew it needed to be dryer.

I'm going for something that Centennial is the highlight but get a good crisp pine from the Chinook and Magnum with that slight extra citrus I like from Torpedo.

I would up all the late addition hops to 1oz each. And as was said before, maybe mash around 150-152 to keep it dry. 1.016 is a little high for an IPA.

I agree with the previous poster that 153 is a bit high for an IPA. I would go with 150 in my system.

But then again, you are doing BIAB. Not sure of your system or how many batches you've done this way, but I'd be willing to bet you lose somewhere around 5+ degrees over the hour. In this case, 153 would be a good starting point for the mash. As a side note, you don't want the mash to drop below 145.

+1 for mash temp. Shoot for 150. You want it to be hoppy, not sweet!

The AA content in dry hops don't mean much because the beer doesn't take that bitterness out of hops unless you boil them. Homebrewers use 3-5oz of dry hop using Citra or Centennial all the time and those hops are 10-13% AA.
