Looks pretty good.

I'd drop the crystal 120 in favor of 60 or less and increase the rye percentage. I like 15-20% for my rye pale ales and IPAs

I usually do 2lbs in my ryes and wanted to bring it down on this one so I get the flavor from the honey malt without going over board with to much of it, I'm new to honey malt an hear its easy to over do. If this turns out I'll probably bump the rye up next time.

I chose 120 because I wanted to get a little more color in the beer while keeping the crystal malt to a minimum. Depending on he final color of the beer I may try your suggestion on that as well.

Looks delicious, but what about the dry hop? I'd suggest an ounce or two of Simcoe.

I am still considering a dry hop but I'm not a huge fan of doing it. I like the taste and smell but I'm afraid it will plug my dip tube in my keg with hops.

So bundle them in a hop sock. Or add them to the primary fermenter and leave them behind when racking to the keg. Or rack the beer to a secondary carboy, leaving the yeast and sediment behind, and add the dry hops there.

Frankly, if you don't add any dry hops at all, you can't call it an IPA.

Ok, but maybe I'll do two of Amarillo since I have more of that.
