Default Mad Hatter Inspired IPA

This is inspired by New Holland's Mad Hatter, not a clone. http://newhollandbrew.com/beer/files/2013/01/NewHollandBC_2013_MadHatter-Spec.pdf

I've never worked with Munich before, so I would greatly appreciate any feedback on the amount. Also, I'm torn between the C40 and C10 there. Not looking for a caramel flavor, but want to boost the residual sweetness a bit, so was concerned with going all C60.

I've also never worked with either of these hops, so advice on the hop schedule is welcome.

You're on the high side of % for crystal in an IPA, but I've never had mad hatter so I don't know what kind of sweetness you're going for. Your hop schedule looks good, but you should really double your late additions (incl dry hop) for a real IPA flavor/aroma. You can adjust your bittering addition as needed to hit the IBU you want.

Thanks for the response.

Just to be sure, is your hops suggestion based on this being a 3 gallon batch?

The crystal is actually about 7% total, which I've seen to be around the mark for a lot of clone recipes (e.g. SN Torpedo: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/asked-sierra-nevada-brewing-about-torpedo-extra-ipa-recipe-here-293420/ ). I've also read that bumping up the light crystals is appropriate when using PacMan.

Can you suggest a target percentage for crystals that won't leave it bone dry?

The more I look around, the more confused I am about the Munich. Would it be better to cut that to 4% and up the 2 row by 4 oz?

Yea, I think you need more hops even for 3gal. You're right about the pacman- you will probably dry out pretty far, especially since the crystal is being mashed with 2row. Don't cut the munich- it's a base grain and you won't get a ton of character out of it if you cut it down any more.
