Default Mango IPA

I'm getting ready to start my mango IPA and have a question for all the hop heads in the house. My bittering hops are 1 oz of summit and my flavor are 1 oz of zythos with no aroma hops. I'm gonna dry hop this one with 1 oz of citra and 1 oz of cascade with 2.5 lbs of mangos. How does my hop line up look like? I've got some palisade hops too I wasn't planning on using. What does everyone think? Is that to much citrus?

Your severely lacking hops. An IPA should have at a min 5-6 oz for dry hopping and that is in addition to a healthy dose of flavor and aroma hops in the boil.

Seriously? A minimum of 5-6 oz? That's a ridiculously high minimum.

As for recipe critique, you need to post a full recipe with when you're adding hops to get good feedback.

The IPA's I've brewed all had 5-6 oz of hops total and only used 1 oz to dry hop

No aroma hops? Why not?

The amount of total hops used depends on your batch size, OG, and intensity of aroma desired. IIPAs like Pliny and Heady may use upwards of 4-6 oz. for a multistage dryhop. But I wouldn't recommend adding this amount to 3 gallons of a 1.055 OG IPA in one stage.

For a 5 gallon batch of standard IPA, 7-10 oz. total hops is good. Figure 0.50 to 0.75 oz. dryhops per gallon of beer. Bump the rate up slightly higher (from 0.75 to 1.25 oz. dryhops per gallon of beer) if brewing an IIPA.

OP, use 1 oz. of the Palisade in the dryhop as well as your current plan. Palisade is fruity which will help your goal. Citra is even fruitier. I would do a simple 60/30/0/DH schedule (30 min is for rounded bitterness) with the majority of the total recipe hops at 0 and DH. Focusing on 0 & DH will give you a hop flavor and aroma profile that is through the roof!

How are you adding/preparing the mangoes? Fresh, frozen, puree? Any special treatments before using?

I too would like to see this full recipe. I have to brew 5 gallons for a wedding with a phillipino groom. Mango is the national fruit.

Use some Rakau hops for aroma. You won't regret it. They're a very peachy/mangoey/passionfruity/citrusy hop. I've been thinking about making a batch combining lots of Rakau and mangos or peaches for a while.
