I would not use anything like amber DME or darker LME in any beer, but especially an IPA or IIPA.

There are crystal malts in the amber malt, plus Munich malt, but you don't know how much or what kind, so it's best to stay away from them and use light or extra-light DME and use your own specialty grains.

If your beer is already fermenting, you can't make it an IIPA now. But for the next batch you could increase the grainbill, add some corn sugar (about a pound), increase the bittering hops, and increase the late hops.

Like this:

1 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 1 11.8 %
8.0 oz Caramel Malt - 40L (Briess) (40.0 SRM) Grain 2 5.9 %

6 lbs DME Golden Light (Briess) (4.0 SRM) Dry Extract 3 70.6 %
1 lbs Corn Sugar (Dextrose) (0.0 SRM) Sugar 4 11.8 %

2.00 oz Chinook [13.90 %] - Boil 60.0
1.00 oz Cascade [8.00 %] - Boil 15.0
1.00 oz Centennial [10.40 %] - Boil 10.0 min
1.00 oz Cascade [8.00 %] - Boil 5.0
1.00 oz Centennial [10.40 %] - Boil 0 min

Dryhop with an oune of centennial and an ounce of cascade

Thanks that definitely fits what was looking for. Ill check my lhbs to make sure they got what i need. They should. Have you made anything similar to this. About the 69 minute boll is that simply for getting more bitterness from the hops. Also would you recommend liquid yeast or could i use dry. I've never made a starter since this only be my second batch. Thanks for the help

Problem solved.lhbs mislabeled their kit. The kit i made was an imperial ipa. If it wasn't my first batch i might have figured that one out.
