Default I bought a pound of Cascade, what to brew?

Fresh dried hop cones. I love hoppy beers. Should I plan a few IPA's wlth alot of flavor/aroma hops added. I think I would use some other hop pellets for bittering.
Any suggestions?

I just finished off an Amber with lots and lots of late hop additions - it was bursting with hop flavor but with balanced bitterness and my most popular beer so far. I wish I could afford to do that on a regular basis. So I vote for an IPA, Amber or Pale Ale with lots of late additions and dry hopping.

I really like my pale ale recipe- it's balanced, but with plenty of cascades to keep it hoppy enough for my IPA-loving taste. I used all cascades a couple of times, but I usually use centennial for bittering, and the rest all cascades.

I'd not use the carapils- you have enough crystal already in there. I'd probably go with .5 pound of a lighter crystal, though, like 10L, and then .5 pound of 60L.

It looks good to me, but I don't think it would be very Ruination-ish. When I taste Ruination (unfortunately, not very often since it's not distributed here), I get centennial overload, in a good way. I love cascades, though, and think it would be a nice beer.

I'd move some of the cascades (or add more) for later additions- at 10, 5, 0 minutes and dryhopping.
