Default American IPA and late addition DME

Hey guys, I've decided my next batch is going to be an American IPA since I've becoming more appreciative of hoppy beers now that I'm brewing.

My LBS has a lot of clone kits that come with DME (usually split up in two ziplock bags) and I was wondering if this style of beer would benefit from a late addition (half) of the DME?

Sure, lots of people add extract towards the end of the boil. In fact, some people only put a small amount of extract in at the beginning to help with hop utilization, and then add the remainder with ~10 minutes left, or even at flameout.


Tried to keep up with this signature, but just couldn't.
