I'm going to brew a wheat IPA next weekend and am hoping for suggestions for hopping as all the IPA's I've done far have been full recipes I've found on HBT. The planned grist and mash outline is below and needing to fill in the hopping type and schedule.
I'd like to keep the OG at 1.070 or lower, as I expect 001 to take it down to 1.012 pushing it to 7.8. I'm shooting for 65-70IBU and had originally planned to bitter with columbus to around 40IBU at 60min and flavor/aroma with Cascade or Centennial, Citra and Amarillo/Simcoe. I was going to save the Chinnok for dry hop and maybe do Chinook/Amarillo/Citra in the dry hop.
I'd like to shoot for clean bitterness, flavor and aroma of piney/resin/citrus. I have the following hops types available in quantity.
I have small quantities of the following hops.
So fellow hop heads, how would you hop this IPA?
