Default hurricane IKE IPA

Got some hops and grain and decided to brew a hop MONSTER named after the hurricane that will soon be right over my head...

11# pale
1# munich
.75# crystal 60L

Pre-wort hop 2 oz Centennial
60 min 1 oz Warrior
30 min 1 oz Centennial
15 min 1 oz Cascade
5 min 1 oz Cascade

Dry Hop 1 oz Cascade

Didn't hit my gravity (not even close), I am a bit upset, should have done a 90 min boil. Live and learn.

OG- 1.044

Is this gravity even IPA quality, or do I just have a very very hopy pale ale?

I know to many this brew may be intolerable to the weak but that was my goal.

What was your post boil volume? 12.75LB of grain should have gotten you much higher than 1.044 on a 5 gallon batch.

I was more around 5.75 gallons at the end, I should have boiled off but I was already chilling the brew

That will have some hurricane hop flavor for sure. How many IBU's?
