I don't live too far from my homebrew store so I can always go pick up a few extra ounces of hops for brewing. Would something like a few pounds of 2 row in a partial mash be the right direction to go in? If so how much would I need?

Early and late hop additions do different things. Early additions impart the bitterness or astringency you can feel on your tongue. Later additions let those aromas that you smell when you rub the hops in your hands stay in the beer. Those aromas are driven off when you boil the hops longer than about 20 minutes.

All that being said, most homebrewers would be reluctant to use the amount of hops it would take to do a continuous addition like DFH does in those IPAs.
I'm just wondering as I've made some continuous hopped brews as of late (still fermenting) to try out the style. They smell amazing but I did add nearly a third of my total hops to steep while cooling. The other third will be dry hopped. Like I said, I'm new to the craft so I've been experimenting a bit.

Well, if you are going to use Munich and Wheat malt, as shown in your original post, you are going to have to do a partial mash, as those grains must be mashed. You don't really need 2 row, as the light DME would serve as the base.

I suggest picking up some software. BeerSmith is very good and a good number of the people on here, myself included, use it. Costs about $25 on the BeerSmith site. That will allow you to put in different grains and extracts and you can build your recipe that way, rather than just guessing.
