Default Hop Schedule

What would the drawbacks be if I didn't add a 60 minute hop addition, but began hopping at 20, 10, and 5 minutes? BeerTools gives me 61 IBU if I do it this way. I'm trying to achieve a lot of hop character in an American IPA using Simcoe and Amarillo hops.

Here's what I've got so far:

Valley Road IPA
14-B American IPA

Efficiency: 75.0%
Attenuation: 75.0%
Calories: 207.12 kcal per 12.0 fl oz

Terminal Gravity: 1.016 (1.010 - 1.018)
Color: 12.47 (6.0 - 15.0)
Alcohol: 6.12% (5.5% - 7.5%)

There is no need to add hops at 60 minutes if you are getting the IBUs you want from the flavor and aroma additions.

Cool. That was my question. I just took the long way getting to it!

No problem.

What I have started doing because of varying alpha content of hops in some of my "house" recipes is making sure that I put the proper IBUs into ProMash for that day's session see where the IBUs come out. I then decrease or increase ONLY the long bittering hop addition to get the IBUs back where I want them and leave the flavor and aroma hops untouched in weights.

Theoretically, if I ever got a batch of cascades that had crazy high alpha content, I might have to eliminate the 60 minute addition from a recipe to keep the IBUs in line.
