Add some additional classic "IPA hops." I'd suggest a few ounces of centennial or cascade. Finally, I'd change the yeast. I'm assuming that the recipe came with a dry yeast. If I were you I'd substitute with a more style-specific liquid yeast (i.e. WLP001).
It did come with 6 oz of Glacier. 5 oz is for boil and 1 oz is for last 10 minutes.

It also came with dry yeast, which I plan on switching to liquid, as suggested. I have some WLP001 already from my first yeast harvesting on my last batch.Thanks for the suggestions.

If the kit yeast was Nottingham (doubtful but possible) and within a year of it's production/package date. I'd just use that after rehydrating.

If the yeast is just a silver package. Chuck it in the fridge as a last resort backup if needed.

Something's wierd here: 5 oz of 6.6% AA hops at 60 minutes will yield 104 IBUs in a 6 gallon boil.

Did you tell them you wanted to switch to an IPA, because that's BITTER!

KIT105 is morebeer's Light Ale kit which is supposed to be:

6 lbs. Ultralight Malt Extract

8 oz. Crystal 15L

0.5 oz. Cascade Hops - 60 minute
1 oz. Cascade Hops - 1 minute

[They've been substituting Glacier for Cascade]

I think you have a total of 1.5 oz there [not 6].


If you want to change this to an IPA, you'll need to get about 3 more pounds of ultralight/pale LME, 1 pound of Crystal 20L, and a couple ounces of good bittering hops like Magnum, Columbus or Warrior.

Here's morebeer's IPA recipe:

9 lbs Ultralight Malt

1.5 lbs Crystal 15

2 oz Magnum - 60 min
2 oz Cascade - 10 min
2 oz Cascade - 5 min

1 Whirlfloc tablet
