It looks like you're making the Three Floyd's Zombie Dust clone to be honest.

Not sure about the malts and what not but I made an IPA(close to a double) a few weeks ago that was had great citrus notes and some grapefruit taste...was the best IPA i personally every had and I couldnt stop drinking it. At my wedding people who dont like IPA, my wife mostly, liked it after a few beers because of the citrusy taste

my hop schedule was

.5oz citra 60min
.5 oz falconer 60 min
.5oz magnum 60min
.5 oz cascade 30min
.5oz cascade 10 min

Dry hop 7 days
.5oz citra
.5oz cascade

ill post the rest of the recipe if anyones interested

It looks like way too much crystal/caramel malt, but otherwise looks great. I'm not a fan of honey malt, but some people are and like the sweet honey flavor against the hops. I'd reduce the crystal/caramel by about 75%, and keep .5 pound of it if you want to use .5 pound of honey malt; but if you have a real fondness for a caramelly sweetness, you could go as high as .75 pound and keep the honey malt.

Like Yooper, I'm not a fan of that much Crystal. I like a thinner, cleaner finishing IPA, but if you like something a little maltier, then I still wouldn't go over 1 lb. I LOVE the honey malt (I use it in all my IPA/APA's), and LOVE the pound of Munich. On the Hop side of things, I might be inclined to use cascade as the bittering hop. Many people have had success bittering with Citra (including the fine people who make Zombie Dust)...but of the 2 times I've tried it, it gave my beer a long, odd bitter finish.

It looks like your OG will be about 1.065, and your FG around 1.012 (maybe higher). That brings your IBU's up to around 140 with your current hop schedule. Some might call that "West Coast," but I call it overkill. If you bittered with cascade and at the same amount, your IBU's will be closer to 90-94, which would bring at least SOME balance to your IPA. I've never made a beer with 2 lbs. of crystal before, so maybe that WOULD be enough to bring balance to a 140 IBU beer...but I just can't say.

It's all up to you. While I like my bitter beers, west coast pallet wreckers arn't my style, so I guess it's just what your mouth wants.

Make sure to post after you brew it!
