I try to not get hung up on styles, but must be feeling cantankerous today.

40IBUs and OG of under 1.050 you are kind of stretching it to call this an IPA.

By all means, brew it and enjoy! But... if you are accusomted to drinking American IPAs and are after that same kind of flavor, this recipe might not be up to par.

It's on the low end of the IPA scale to be sure. I do have some perle and fuggle i bought in case i wanted to kick the IBU's up some more. However, I just brewed an 82 IBU IPA. So I think i am cool with a nice semi-hoppy pale ale with a hint of apricot.

So far my fermentation is not very agressive and its day 4. You think its the WLP005? or should i do something to shake things up?

I used WLP023 for my last IPA and it nearly blew the lid off the primary and fermented for about 7days.
