Default recipe formulation help - AG

it's my friends 40th bday in a couple of months and she's asked me to make a beer for her party. she generally drinks west coast ipa...she also loves the color red. i was thinking of making a hoppy amber ale. i'm not familiar with making recipes as yet so i wanted some advise. also not sure how to make the beer red (as bright red as possible) and what hops would go with it. I'm thinking nothing too bitter maybe 40ibu more or less.

hoping someone can help me out with a recipe suggestion! this will be all grain and i'm going to brew a 5G batch.

thank you in advance for your help!

Sounds like Jamil's Evil Twin would do the trick:

Evil Twin
This beer ends up rich and malty, yet with a devilishly huge hop aroma and flavor. It is loosely based on AleSmith’s delicious Evil Dead Red. Thanks to Peter Zien for his help with this recipe.

Ingredients for 6 U.S. gallons:

12.0 lb British Pale Malt 3L
1.0 lb Crystal 40L
1.0 lb Munich Malt 8L
0.50 lb Victory Malt 25L
0.50 lb Crystal 120L
0.25 lb Pale Chocolate Malt 200L

0.5 oz Centennial pellet hops, 10% alpha acid (20 min.) (6.4 IBU)
0.5 oz Amarillo pellet hops, 7% alpha acid (20 min.) (4.5 IBU)
1.0 oz Centennial pellet hops, 10% alpha acid (10 min.) (7.6 IBU)
1.0 oz Amarillo pellet hops, 7% alpha acid (10 min.) (5.3 IBU)
1.0 oz Centennial pellet hops, 10% alpha acid (0 min.) (0 IBU)
1.0 oz Amarillo pellet hops, 7% alpha acid (0 min.) (0 IBU)

Yeast: A clean, neutral yeast that attenuates in the mid-70-percent range is perfect. White Labs WLP001 or Wyeast 1056 American Ale are both excellent choices. Ferment at 68° F.

Target Original Gravity: 1.066 (16.21 Plato)
Approximate Final Gravity: 1.016 (4.08 Plato)
Brewhouse Efficiency: 70%
Anticipated SRM: 17
Anticipated IBUs: 23.8
Anticipated ABV: 6.66%
Wort Boil Time: 90 minutes

Directions
Single infusion mash at 154° F using a ratio of 1.3 quarts water to 1 pound of grain. While you could go with a shorter boil, the 90- minute boil enhances the blood-red color. It also adds a touch more melanoidin and caramel notes. Cool the wort quickly after the last hop addition to retain as much hop aroma as possible. Optionally, dry hop with more Centennial or Amarillo if you’re a real hop monster. Carbonate to no more than 2 volumes and serve at 45 to 55° F.
