you could also do a hop stand:
1 oz at 60 (or however much you need to get your desired IBUs, use chinook since it's going to be higher AA%)
1 oz at 5
2 oz at flame-out, let sit for 10 minutes
2 oz at 175-180*F (chill down to 175-180*F, add hops, stir quickly, cover, let rest for 20 mins, then resume chilling)
2 oz dry-hop

if you have any additional hops, increase the dry-hop to 3 or 4 oz.
Thanks for the response! So few hops at 60min. Will it have much bitter character? Think my Chinook is 11% AA? Idk, the LHBS wrote 11% on the bag. Forgive me as I'm not fully versed in IBU calculation just yet, but it looks like it might yield somewhere in the mid 60's range?

the 60 minute addition is where you get most of your bittering, so add as much or as little as you need to achieve your desired level of bitterness (taking into consideration that you'll also get a few IBUs from your late additions). use software to calculate your projected IBUs. i'm a big fan of BeerSmith, one of the better brewing-related investments i've made, but there are free alternatives too like brewtoad.com. put in your recipe, water volumes, boil length, hop additions, etc into the software and see how many IBUs are estimated. if the IBUs aren't what you want, change them by varying your 60 minute addition up or down. if 1 oz of chinook doesn't get you enough IBUs, trying plugging in 1.1 or 1.2 oz.

without knowing your recipe and process (length of boil? all grain or late-addition extract? full boil or top-up? size of batch? etc) there is no way of knowing how many IBUs you'll get. hence the need to set up your recipe and process in software before you can get an estimate.
