So after looking at the BYO issue I've made some changes. I used similar hops and changed the amounts. I hopped it up quite a bit more and upped the OG a little bit to compensate for it. With some more research on other breweries brewing this style, I decided to try and keep a typical IPA recipe and use a nice clean lager yeast instead of an ale yeast. What do you think? I haven't brewed an IPA yet and I loved brewing my last lager.

Edit: If you noticed, I tried to use the hops in ounce increments so I don't have any leftover. Assuming the hops I buy will come in ounce packages.
