Default IIPA Hop Help

I have some hops I want to use up and the desire to do an IIPA. I will use pale malt and C40. I plan for it to be 7-8% and 85-100 IBUs, think Hop Stoopid!. I am not concerned if it is exactly true to standard.

My hops to choose from:

Chinook
Simcoe
Centennial
Cascade
Williamette
Amarillo


Okay hopheads, what is a good combo/schedule?

I'd use chinook for bittering, centennial for flavor, and Amarillo/simcoe for aroma and dry hopping...

What would be a good bittering target, from what I gather, about 40-45 IBUs? I want a hop bomb, not a bitter bomb!

Amount would depend on what you're trying to do. Just use whatever amounts to get you to your target IBUs.

Just a heads up that Hop Stoopid uses hop extract to help get that "smack you across the face with hops" flavor. Schedule for your target IBUs with the bittering and flavor and then a hopback and/or an obscene amount of aroma and dry hops should send it over the edge.

I also agree with the Chinook for bittering and Centennial for the main flavoring hops. I wouldn't introduce the Williamette, but that's just my taste / preference. If you're going to use Centennial, ditch the Cacade as it's roughly the same. Mix up some Amarillo, Simcoe, and Cent. for aroma and dry hop and that's sounding really good to me.

Agreed, tons of flavor and aroma, but I would blow out the bitter too.

2 oz of chinook 90 min, ALL the rest (except 2 oz centennial for dry hopping) at 10 min or flameout.

I didn't necessarily mean to use Williamette or Cascade, just pointing out that I had them. What amount of IBUs should I target for the bittering? I may not have more than an ounce of Chinook. If not what else would work? I have Cluster (similiar to Galena) as well.

Would it be okay to use Chinook in combo with Simcoe for bittering?
