I admit it does look supremely crazy to me. IPA is one of my favorite styles. But something in my gut tells me this will probably work out real well. If I wasn't booked up on my next 3 brew days, I'd do this on saturday. Regardless, it's on my list to get to soon. Post results!

Enough people have reassured you already, but I am gonna say one more thing. I just brewed up and American Pale Ale a couple months ago with no hops at all in the boil, 2 1/2 oz at flameout/whirlpool, and 1 3/4 in the dry hop. It has insane hop flavor with no bitterness(as you could guess), but it is so delicious.

Get your hands on the July/August issue of BYO magazine. It talks about this, it is called hopbursting.

well when i pitched my yeast the wort was still way too hot. my buddies wife came home from work early, and i didnt want 5.5 gallons of hot wort sitting on her kitchen counter. so after a day or so of no activity, i purchased another packet of us05, and pitched it into the carboy, the temp was about 68 degrees, kept it in the swamp cooler, and maintained a temp of 68 degrees. weeeeeellllllll let me tell you about the fermentation, it went off like a bat outta hell, and proceeded to clog up the airlock, so i put a blow off tube, i think i didnt kill the first batch of yeast, but just kinda shocked it, so when its buddies came to party, it was a blast.

sg-1.058
fg-1.014
i tasted it, and it tastes really good, you know, for being warm and flat,lol. ill keep you guys posted

well heres the update that i promised. i dry hopped with 2 ounces of simcoe hops. the first ounce was in the carboy for 4 days, the second was in there for 7 days.314.jpg the taste is incredibly smooth...like light beer smooth. the hop flavor and aroma is intense. simcoe hops have a great piney, citrusy, and almost tropical fruit taste. great head retention, and nice body to the beer. i will be brewing this beer again...as soon as i can find 7 oz of simcoe for less then an arm and a leg.
