Default IPA Critique

I'm trying to throw together a recipe from stuff I have on hand. I'm thinking about an summer time IPA. (If summer ever comes to the PNW).

I also have crystal 40, cara-pils, and munich. This is all the varieties of hops I have, but I have more of each. Not sure about the yeast yet. I have Nottingham in the fridge, but may pick up something else.

I'm interested in what folks think about the recipe, and the hops schedule in particular. I've never used Bravo or Glacier before, so don't know what to expect. I will dry hop with something, not sure what variety yet.

I'm open to suggestions. Thanks.

Looks good. I like Vienna in my IPAs.. actually usually use it as my base malt. Depending on the malt character you want maybe toss some C40L in there.

Hop schedule looks good, maybe dryhop some cascade is you've got more.

As far as yeast goes, I like US05 in IPAs simply due to the cleaner profile. I feel like it stays out of the way of the hops better... But that's just me. Nottys a great yeast as well.
