I would agree, in total thats 42g, thats less than what I would sometimes dry hop with, But at 7% avb it isn't a APA either.

I think my current IPA in the fermenter had approximately 128g and thats should be heading for 5.4% if all goes well.

And again, I'm asking if everyone is seeing that this is a 1 gallon batch. The OP has the equivalent of 7.5 oz or 212 g of boil hops if it was a 5 gallon batch.

OP, if your cascade was about 4.5% I think your calculations are probably right at around 50 IBU. Are you going to dry hop?
I had not intended on dry hopping initially, but I've been inching towards going for it more and more every day. Any recommendations for what I should dry hop with?

Given your current hop lineup, Cascade would be the obvious choice Any of the "C" hops would compliment the cascade nicely, or Simcoe, maybe some fruity NZ hops even

there's definitely not too much hops in this (rare I make one with less), but there is too much focus on the bittering hops (30+mins). the majority of your hops should be in the final 15mins. next time i'd move that 45 to 5 and the 30 to DH

you should never intend to not dry hop an IPA. like has been said, any 'C' hop will do

My buddy just finished up a Nelson clone of the Alpine Brewing Co which is just east of San Diego. While nobody has the exact recipe... some are close and it calls for 11oz of Nelson Sauvin for dry hopping.

Just went into the keg this past weekend, can't wait to try it
