Default New "India Red Ale" recipe

I made a hop-bursted India pale ale but I wanted a red color, so I'm calling it an "IRA". I wanted a lower ABV IPA, with a strong malt backbone but intense hops flavor and aroma.

I just kegged this yesterday, and the beer is only 21 days old but I'm very happy with it.

This is the recipe (11 gallon batch):

18 lbs Brewers Malt 2-Row (Briess) (1.8 SRM) 79.1 %
2 lbs Borlander Munich Malt (Briess) (10.0 SRM) 8.8 %
1 lbs 8.0 oz Caramel Malt - 40L (Briess) (40.0 SRM) 6.6 %
12.0 oz Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) 3.3 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM) 2.2 %
1.00 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [13.80 %] - Boil 20.0 min 14.8 IBUs
2.00 oz Simcoe [11.90 %] - Boil 15.0 min 19.0 IBUs
2.00 oz Amarillo [10.10 %] - Boil 10.0 min 13.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [13.80 %] - Boil 5.0 min 4.9 IBUs
2.00 oz Amarillo [10.10 %] - Aroma Steep 0.0 min 0.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Simcoe [11.90 %] - Aroma Steep 0.0 min 0.0 IBUs
2.00 oz Amarillo Leaf [10.80 %] - Dry Hop 5.0 Days 0.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Simcoe [11.90 %] - Dry Hop 5.0 Days 0.0 IBUs
Wlp001, fermented at 66 degrees.

I dryhopped in the primary on day 15. The beer was clear at that time. I mashed at 152. The OG was 1.056, and the FG was 1.012.

Here are some photos of racking, and of the hydrometer sample in a glass:
