Default Brewing a IIPA

Should be an interesting brew. I will be mashing low (148 for 90 min) to get a nice dry finish:

11.5 Gallon Batch
OG 1.081
IBU 87
SRM 8

Grain Bill:
22 Lbs US Pale 2row
10 Lbs UK Marris Otter
.25 lb Crystal 10
.25 lb Crystal 20
.25 lb Crystal 40
.25 lb Crystal 60
.25 lb Crystal 90
.25 lb Crystal 120

Hops:
3oz Magnum 11% 90min
3oz EKG 5% 90min
2oz EKG 5% 30min
2oz US Hallertau 4% 30min
1.5oz EKG 5% 5min
2oz US Hallertau 4% 5min
1oz Cascade 7.6% 5min

The dry hops are still up in the air



Update:
Mash: 10.5 gallons @ 148 (90min)
Mashout: 2 gallons boiling, raising mash to 156
Sparge: 5.5 gallons
Pre-boil gravity: 1.066 for 14.3 gallons.
Original Gravity: 1.075
Volume in Fermenters: 10.75
Pitched two different yeasts: wy1056 and wy3787

Not enough information to judge it properly, but that amount of grain looks like a 10 or more gallon batch or a really big Barley Wine. And if you really mean only .25 oz of each of those crystal, you will have no discernible character from each of them and none even from all of them combined. Guessing you mean .25 lbs.

Looks to me like you're making a complicated beer just to make a complicated beer. I'd simplify it, personally.

Are you just looking to get rid of some Crystal?

I'm curious as to the motivation behind the spectrum of small amounts of crystal malts. I really doubt anyone is going to notice the difference between 10 and 20 in that recipe.

I had all of them on hand, and Ive been doing a whole lot of very simple recipes lately. So I thought I would bust out a complicated one. It's kind of one of those "hmm, wonder what that would taste like" moments

Is this suppose to be some sort of hybrid IIPA between English and American?

I know you said IPA, but this is going to be a IIPA if you hit those numbers

Since IPAs are a showcase for the hop flavors, it's usually a good idea to keep the specialty grain bill simple so as not to tread all over the hop profile.

Still, I'd drink it.
