Default A Red Chair clone attempt

Just moved this to a corny for dry hopping yesterday - Went in around 1.054, came out 1.012.

What do you guys think?

I sure it will taste good but it is a little different from the recipe that I put together based on info and some research:

Size: 11.0 gal
Efficiency: 80.0%

Original Gravity: 1.065 (1.045 - 1.060)
Terminal Gravity: 1.016 (1.010 - 1.015)
Color: 13.63 (5.0 - 14.0)
Alcohol: 6.41% (4.5% - 6.2%)
Bitterness: 60.2 (30.0 - 45.0)

Ingredients:
14.5 lb American 2-row
2.5 lb Munich Malt
4.5 lb Pilsner Malt
3.75 lb Caramel Malt 20L
1.25 lb Carastan
1.25 lb Cara-Pils® Malt
1.0 oz Centennial (10.0%) - added during boil, boiled 60 min
0.5 oz Cascade (5.5%) - added during boil, boiled 60 min
2.0 oz Centennial (10.0%) - added during boil, boiled 15 min
2.0 oz Cascade (5.5%) - added during boil, boiled 15 min
2.5 oz Centennial (10.0%) - added during boil, boiled 5 min
2.5 oz Cascade (5.5%) - added during boil, boiled 5 min
2.0 ea WYeast 1275 Thames Valley Ale
1.5 oz Centennial (10.0%) - added dry to secondary fermenter
1.5 oz Cascade (5.5%) - added dry to secondary fermenter

60min Mash Target: 151 °F
Double Batch Sparge @ 175 °F, 10 min
Total Runoff: 13.96 gal

This has been in the fermenter for 10 days so I don't know how close it is yet.

Yup, I think I used yours as a guide - and wanted to add some of my own tweaks It wouldn't be experimental brewing if we all followed everyone else's brews Plus, I had the citra in the freezer, waiting to be used.

Isn't Red Chair supposed to be a really smooth/no bite highly hopped IPA? If so, wouldn't there be a FWH and different hopping schedule than the way it's traditionally done?

Well, I obviously did an partial mash version - and had to work with what I had Since this is my first foray into creating/modifying a recipe on my own I'm quite excited to see how it pans out. Early indications are promising, and I can't wait until it's aged a bit to tap it!

Yes about the flavor put it isn't considered an IPA - they call it a NWPA - Northwest Pale Ale.

My recipe was put together for some information from the brewery and other research. I never saw any indication of FWH but depending on how my first run tastes I may do that.
