I'd like some assistance tweaking an extract recipe. A buddy of mine bought a Brewer's Best Summer Ale extract kit. He never got around to making it and I offered to take it off his hands. Summer Ale's aren't my beer of choice at the moment. If possible, I'd like to turn it into an pseudo IPA. I'd also like to add 1-2% ABV.
I'm fairly new to home brewing and I'd like some opinions on what to add. What would you do in this situation?
