I think you've got too much crystal malt.

I'd probably ditch the crystal 10 and adjust to make the crystal 40 10% or less of the grain bill. I'd probably also think about pitching 2 packs of yeast - unless I misread and its less than a 5 gallon batch that's going in to the fermentor.

I've never made a pale ale with wheat (extract or grain), but that doesn't bother me.

Edit: you may need to adjust your extract if you remove the crystal. I don't think it's able to self convert, but it looks like you're using beersmith so just adjust accordingly.

Anything over 1.050 I always go with 2 packs or make a starter. Check out the "starter" tab in beersmith. It tells you the number of cells you have and the number of cells you need.

You may also want to consider adding 8oz of sugar to get it to dry out a little more. I almost always add a little corn or table sugar to my apa/ipas to get them to get down to 1.008 or less.

Are you trying to make this clone recipe on your own or did you get another recipe and modify it? I don't want to take you too far off course if you're working with something close to a tried and true clone.

Cheers!

Agreed. No more than 6-8 ounces (total) of crystal malt in a 3.5 gallon sized batch. I don't use wheat in my IPAs, but many people do with good results.

1.2 ounces of bittering hops seems like an awful lot for a 3.5 gallon batch. I'd reduce that, and then increase all of the flavor and aroma additions to .75 ounces.

For the dryhops, .2 ounces of centennial is a "don't bother" amount. Either add hops, or don't, but .2 ounces isn't nearly enough to even taste.
