You're telling me this recipe doesn't call for a flavor/aroma hop? I've had this beer and find it very unlikely. Are you sure they didn't leave something out by mistake? Also, the hops seem fairly low. Of course, I'm assuming this is a 5 gallon batch.

I agree that the hops do seem low, but it's difficult to argue when they provide the recipe. My plan is to use this info and enter it into a program, adjusting the hop levels and grain bill to get the desired ABV and IBU's that match their bottle.

Let us know how it turns out. If it matches their beer pretty closely, I'd like to eventually brew it.

I am not familiar with this beer at all so I may be unqualified to comment...but if it's a lower-gravity beer (recipe doesn't say), it may not take that much hops to give it some punch. Columbus and Amarillo are fairly high AA, so it won't take that much to provide high bittering. The long boil will also increase hop utilization. Finally, the first addition (first-wort hops) probably takes the place of the flavor hops.

That much dry hopping will give the beer plenty of hop aroma.

Yes, that *is* beer. Water, malt, hops, and yeast mean it's beer. Go ahead and try a glass...

It's a 10% ABV double IPA, which is why I think the recipe is a bit off. I haven't punched it into BeerTools though, so I could be wrong.
