Yeast? Mash temp? Dry hops?

Wouldn't that make it an East Coast IPA? West Cost IPA's are dry and overly hopped.

I would cut down to 1/2 lb Crystal Malt and 1/2 lb carapils and just mash at higher temp (154F) for a maltier profile. Also you need no less than 8 oz of hops to make it "west coast style"

What is your anticipated OG, FG and IBU's?

MOAR HOPS!!!

But seriously, I would add more hops. If you get good prices on simcoe then bitter with it more in the 90 min range. Maybe an ounce. Otherwise columbus would work. I like to bitter with warrior/chinook/magnum and then fill out the profile with simcoe on the flavor/aroma side. What about dry hops?

On the malt side I would cut the carapils/crystal in half. I use that much on a 10 gallon batch. Depending on your efficiency kick up the OG a bit. Maybe 1070 or so. West coast IPAs all run in the 7% range (at least all the GOOD ones!).

For the yeast 1056 will ferment nice and clean but also consider a dry english yeast. I don't know my wyeast but it would be wlp007 or wlp002. That will change your character a bit. Might accentuate the maltiness without overpowering the hops.

Keep in mind this is all opinion from me. Your taste may vary..

I just saw your est IBU and OG. Those numbers look good. Also nice dryhop. It pasted weird into the browser when you posted and your details got mixed up.

Do you have a commercial example or two that you like?

I agree on cutting the crystal an carapils down to 1/2lb each, but if you want it maltier, up the Munich to maybe 2-3lbs. Cut back on the 2row if you'd like or just accept the higher OG.

I'd add a few additions of either cascade or amarillo, especially near the end.

I really like Sweetwater IPA and Lagunitas IPA. I also love the Green Flash IPA. That's kind of what I was going for. Thanks for the imput.

Nice. Well you are on the right track. Maybe a randallizer too? Really push that hop character up?

Let us know how it turns out!
