The grain bill looks good. Is there a specific reason for adding the Willamette? I only ask because it isn't really a flavor hop nor does it have high alpha. I would say keep it out and use it in a stout or a cream or so.

Other than the Wilamette, it looks like you are going for a nice citrusy IPA. Personally I'd sub out the Wilamette for more cascade (similar AA to Wilamette). Any plans to dryhop as well?

Maybe go for a first wort hopping with the columbus, to create a smooth bitterness and a little flavor. Then, I would drop the willamette and add citra or centennial. Also, maybe just add that mix of hops at 15, 10, 5, and 0 mins left in the boil. The Pacman yeast is going to leave that beer pretty dry. It chews through EVERYTHING!

I think using the Willamette is creative. It certainly wont overpower the other hops.

The hops are a personal preference but I would start hop bursting at 15 minutes left. I don't think you get much out of a 30-40 minute if your goal is to extract flavor

Looks kinda like dfh 90 min but different hop combo. I agree with dropping the willamette. Sounds good though!

What's with the Willamette hate?

Personally fond of a Cascade, Willamette blend and have used it in many different styles.

I'm a fan of Willamette in my citrus hop blends too. It gives a nice funk note that i dig.
