Default Wet hop brew day

So I have 4 lbs of wet hops coming on thursday. I have a recipe written up, but I would love to get some notes on it. I figure it will be a double IPA. Also, I have heard that a lb of wet hops is roughly 2.5 oz of dried. Is that correct?

5gal batch

Grist:
9.5 lb two row
1 lb munich
.75 lb caramel 60L
2 lb honey

Hops:
1/5 lb amarillo, simcoe, cascade, centennial@ 20, 15, 10, 5, 0 min

Beer Smith has this at OG: 1.078, 80 IBU, 8.2 SRM (maybe darker depending on honey), and around 9% fermented with WLP001.

I'll make a 1L starter then step it up to 2L and I'll mash at 152 finish around 1.011

Sorry if that is a little mixed up.

Cheers,
Michael J. Pelechaty

what site did you oreder your wet hops through? because at this point you can only pre-order wet hops through major sites right now. none of them have fresh 2012 havest hops shipping out right now. i have called 7 different companies, and all they carry right now if anything is 2011 that has been vacu-sealed and set in the fridge fore the last 10 or 11 months.

Are you planning on dry hopping? If so, are you going to save the wet hops and use them for this purpose?

So I have thought about it, but if I wait to dry hop with the wet hops they will go bad so I think im going to strickly brew with them. and then do a 5 oz dry hop with 2 oz of simcoe, 1 oz of amarillo, 1 oz of centennial, and 1 oz of cascade.

I would like some input though since I haven't done this before.

Cheers,
Michael J. Pelechaty
