Good to know!! Do you think these will pair up nicely?

1.00 oz warrior (60 min first wort hop)
1.00 oz zythos (60 min)
1.00 oz citra (60 min)
1.00 oz centennial (45 min)
1.00 oz cascade (45 min)
1.00 oz centennial (30 min)
1.00 oz centennial (10 min)
1.00 oz cascade (10 min)

I do. I'm not very familiar with Zythos, but from what I've read it sounds good there. I'm interested to see how your Citra at 60 without another addition turns out. I've only used Citra at later additions and dry hops. I have always been a fan of pairing centennial and cascade.

Hmmmm. Ya i hope the early citra addition was a good decision. Was trying to match the alpha of the warrior and citra was the closest one. BtW the zythos and the warrior smelled soo good!! Thinking of making a simple pale recipe just using those.

I really think shifting most of those to 20 minutes and less in the boil would give you more hop flavor and aroma!

Well, I think that you meant "oz" not "lbs"
Did you brew this from the couch on your porch?

Agreed. Take one or two of the 45 minute additions, double the amount, and then FWH or add at 20 min left.

Centennial works really well in FWH, along with Amarillo, Chinook (at least the batch I got, which was not as piney and very grapefruity), and Cascade, in my experiences. I bet Simcoe would do well too, but I've not FWH with it yet.

I advocate shifting more hops at less time boiling since I read about it, tried it, and had my "standard" IPA come out much better using the same recipe but with either FWH or loaded up late additions. You get the bitterness and the hop aroma and flavor and it just makes a better beer.
