A good IPA I'd probably stick with a 1.0-1.2 BU/Gravity ratio and tweak from there.

I'd give inhousebrew's recipe a try and either dry hop with cascade or pick up some more galaxy and dry hop with both. Been a while since I've worked with Columbus, forgot how resiny it can be- wouldn't want that dank quality to overtake your galaxy.

If you can't get more galaxy you might hold back half an ounce for the dry hop just so the cascade doesn't completely take over.

This is a matter of.preference. personally I like bitterness that isn't a palate killer. If I were doing a six percent beer, I would not go over 70 IBU's.

Also, you need to take into consoderation that your yeast slurry will steal anywhere from 20-30% of you IBU's.

OK - finally got this brewed yesterday. I used the hop schedule suggested by inhousebrew, but I'm not sure about dry hopping. I don't have any more Galaxy! What should I use instead?
