Also try and put the recipe in a program and post your OG, FG, IBUs ect...
From there you can compare it with other beers alcohol and flavor
That was really my fear in trying to go crazy with hops. I may use this as a test run, hope for the best and then adjust the rye later.

Thanks, I had a feeling my hop timing might be a bit off.
Hopville has me at 1.071 OG, 1.018 FG, 78.2 IBU and 7.1 ABV. If I lose some or all of the rye and go for a straight IPA, some of those will obviously go down. The IBU is in the neighborhood of what I was shooting for.
