Black patent seems kind of off style for an IPA...and won't a half pound of it overwhelm the hops? The SNCA clone I just did used 1 lb of 80L steeped...1/2 40L and 1/2 black patent is going to be very dark...like a porter or stout. In fact I've got an Imperial Stout recipe that only uses 1/2 lb of black patent.

If you want it kindof dark and sweet, maybe try 2-3 ozs of special B instead of that black patent. I like IPAs that have a bit of a toasted flavor to the grain bill.
