good would be the understatement of the century. IMO it is truly one of the great beers made in the world.
Besides being delicious, it marches to the beat of its own drum, different than most of the IPAs out there, and lets face it even most of the good IPAs out there are quite homogeneous.
If I were you(and I'm also a hophead), I would either get the NB furious kit, brew skeezers zombie dust, or use a basic IPA grain bill like
10 lbs 2 row
.5 lb crystal 40 or 60
.5 lb dextrin malt(carapils, carafoam, ect)
and some corn sugar if you like your IPAs on the dry side
then use whatever hops you can get your hands on, citra, chinook, amarillo, simcoe, cascade, and centenial would all be good choices and hop accordingly
use a 60 min addition to get you to 60-80 IBU's
(hopville can help you figure out the recipe)
then from 20 minutes to flame out add somewhere between 3-6 ounces at different intervals
dry hop with another 2-3 oz.
Basically any combination of those hops is going to taste good.
