Default Mango IPA (please critique)

I just brewed a mango IPA. This is my first IPA, as well as the first beer using fruit. The recipe is a take off of zombie dust clone, but with a slightly higher OG and the addition of 4oz of dried mango and 4oz of dried green mangos in the boil. The wort tastes good, and you can get a mango flavor, so I hope that will come through later. Also, if you could comment on possibly secondarying with mango that would be helpful. I was considering dry hop and mango in the secondary but wanted to get some imput.

Generally, any fruit you use should be in the last third of fermentation or in secondary. Any sooner and you will loose most of the fruit in the boil/fermentation. I'd expect most of your mango additions not to come through if you added them to the boil. Secondary with mango puree might work.

I'm planning on making a mango wheat, but like boist said the mango will go in the secondary. Its a 5 gal batch and will take about 6 whole mangos.

Edit: I can't read...

I'd dry hop with some Citra. It's awesome.

Those hop additions seem kind of odd to me for an IPA. And is it really only less than 2 oz of hops?

It's a 2 1/2 gallon beer.

I was considering using mango and citra dry hop in the secondary, but sampling the finished wort does have a good mango flavor. It really tastes great, so I believe boiling the mango did have some effect, though I don't know if that is due to the mango in the boil or from the tropical fruit flavors of the citra hop.

Yes, it is less than 2 oz for an ipa, but its a small batch. According to beer calculus it should be around 100 ibus. I used whole leaf and didn't use a hop bag, so hopefully they are fully utilized.

I didn't know how well fresh mango puree would work in the secondary, because wouldn't you have to boil it? And then it would just leave some sludge and sit at the bottom. I don't know if there would be much gained from that.
