I'd just use 9 lbs of light DME; I'd cut the Crystal 60 down to 8 oz.

I'd maybe do 1 oz of Northern Brewer and 1 oz Chinook @ 60 and the other oz of Brewer @ 20 (or just use 1 oz of NB @ 20 -- 5 oz. will be a lot of hops in this beer -- which isn't a bad thing, just an observation).

05 is a good yeast for IPAs.

post back when brew it and let us know how it turns out

20 oz of crystal is a little much, I might leave out the 120. I don't think you will get much from the Munich in that small amount either.

As for the hop additions, I would use the Simcoe early on (I find the flavor kinda meh), maybe save some of the Cascade or NB for Dry Hopping. I would not make an IPA without dry hopping it.

something like so:
1oz Simcoe at 60
1oz Chinook @ 20
1oz NB @ 5
1oz NB @ flame out (steep for 10 then chill)
1oz Cascade DH for 7 - 14 days

Play around with the numbers in one of the calculators to get the IBUs where you want them.

US 05 is a great yeast for an IPA.

Your recipe looks jim-dandy to me. The only change I would make would be an oz. of dry hops in secondary. Simcoe, centennial, or cascade would be fine. No way I'd waste an oz. of simcoe at 60 min.

Great info. I knew it would be a good idea to bounce this off of others.

The S 05 is fine yeast, but look into White Labs WL051. It's the only yeast I use in IPA's. Also, if you're a hop freak like many of us, you could dry hop with an ounce of Cascade or something similar. To be honest though, the recipe looks great as is. Just giving you my $.02.

I might have to try another batch with Simcoe. I did an amarillo-simcoe IPA with a tried and true grain bill. Was not my favorite by a long shot. Maybe its just me? I know this is a popular combination, so you may like it.

Default MORE questions

Should I steep the simcoe at flame out to cool, or dry hop?

Can I dry hop in primary? I am working on getting a seconday. Does it need to be a carboy?

I have used tastybrew.com and like that. I am 76 IBU. How hoppy will this be?

Thanks

If this is your first IPA and you haven't bought the ingredients yet you may want to try something tried and true like the Dogfish 60 clone Yooper posted:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/dogfish-head-60-minute-clone-ag-extract-25709/

My second batch of that is finishing now...cant wait...

Edit: extract version of that recipe is available on page 9
