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.
