I've noticed you recommend using leaf hops over pellets. Just out of curiosity, why is that?

I like using pellets during flameout and dryhop since I feel you get more oil release from them during these stages. They are also easier to work with. But a big thing that leaf hops have going for them is that the supplier cannot hide their quality/freshness/purity. What you see is what you get. With pellet hops, quality "can" be more debatable.

Additionally, IPAs use more hops than other beer styles. Homebrewers usually buy leaf hops in bulk (12-16 oz. minimums) at places like hopsdirect.com or freshops.com - They may even get bulk discounts from their local LHBS. Hopsdirect usually has more variety of leaf hops suitable for American IPAs and Freshops doesn't even sell pellets.

Any update on the remaining recipe requests? Just curious. Still no hurry from me.

I want the malt to matter and what I do taste, I want it to be a more complex backbone. Adding pilsener or wheat is welcome.
Edit:

I included mash and fermentation intructions on page 2. Scale the recipe up to 10 gallons and I think it's exactly what you're looking for. Sub the hops for any of the above mentioned. Another good combo would be Columbus, Citra, Amarillo, Falconers Flight.

Sounds great! Thanks!

Can you make an IPA like miller lite? I love those triple hopped beers.

I can do a full boil, but that would leave my batch rather small. I can get a mild sorta boil from 4 gallons, but much better when I start with 3.5. I boil off about 1.2 gallons in an hour.

Kettle size (size - in gallons): 5 gallons
Carboy or Bucket? (size - in gallons): (3) 5 gallon and (1) 6.5 gallon bucket
Extract, Partial Mash, or All-Grain: extract + grains
Do you BIAB? Yes, No, or What the Hell is that?: not familiar with it
Are you able to rack to secondary?: can
Boil size (in gallons): 3.5 - 4 gallons
Batch size (in gallons): prefer to top off for a greater volume, otherwise about 2.3 gallons
List your top 3-5 favorite commercial American IPAs: Ranger, Stone's, Inversion (don't recall what I thought of Full Sail or Belgo)
IPA's I didn't like were: Bridegeport's and St Arnold's, with Big Sky kinda iffy
List your top 3-5 favorite commercial American Imperial IPAs: Hop Czar and Extra Torpedo (Trying to achieve a piney taste similar to my 1st experience with)
What is your desired alcohol level for this recipe?: 5.7-6.5%
Can you make a yeast starter, or do you prefer dry yeast?: starter (have washed 1272 and WLP 001, but can get another if needed)
Patience level (1-none, 2-low, 3-medium, 4-high): 3
Quality expectation (1-I don't care, I just want to drink, 2-If you can brew me the average beer then that's cool, 3-pretty high, 4-I want world class): 3
Balance (1-I would rather have something more sweet than bitter, 2-I want an absolute even bitterness and sweetness, 3-give me a beer with smooth, yet prominent bitterness, 4-blast me with bitterness and peel off my enamel): 2-3, but I'm also interested in 4
Body (1-Thin and highly drinkable, 2-Moderate body, drinks fairly easy, 3-Full body, a sipper for sure): 2
