I've used either / or in different brews, never mixed at 60...which wouldn't be a bad idea. You can also try and boil for 75 or 90 min to add bitterness.

I think Calypso is great for what you want.

My lhbs doesn't have calypso on the website and they're really good about updating the website.

I think what ill do is both adding gypsum and doing some 1 gal batches with different bittering hops.
I live in the PNW and we all know what cascade smells and tastes like so if I keep the grain bill the same and keep the late hops the same just change the bittering hop, I should be able to get a feel for what I want.

I'm kinda partial to Columbus for bittering at FWH in my IPAs and I always use Gypsum to raise my sulfate levels to 300 to 350. This provides a nice sharp bitterness.

I second the Columbus and sulfate recommendations. I've really been liking Galena for bittering as well, it's a great all around hop.
