I'm currently drinking a Sorachi Ace/ 2-row SMaSH right now and I'm really liking the flavors as well. The IBU's are only in the low 40's so it's not quite IPA territory but I really like the overall bittering/flavor the lone hop gives. I'm not sure if increasing the bitterness would make it unbalanced or not as I have heard this particular hop isn't great as a single hop beer. Just giving my experience with this hop.
