Default Extract - Arrogant bastard attempt 1

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: nottingham
Yeast Starter: no
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: no
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.053
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 86.4
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: red/black
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Tasting Notes: Green: sweet and citrus, smooth, light on the tonge, full at racking: smooth hoppy f

This is my first recipe post.
I found an all grain version of this online and converted it to extract. I changed adjunct grains, + .5lb additional crystal malt 120L and .5 crystal malt 60L. This was mostly due to being just short on my LME to do the exact conversion.
I forgot the Irish moss but the beer looks great. it's aged for about two weeks now and has a very nice hop flavor. Great beer. Not really sweet just subtle hints of sweetness on the back of the citrus hop flavor.
I am very new to brewing so sorry if my taste description isn't great.
I am looking for any suggestions to adjust this and make it better the next time.
(I have the beersmith file for this but not sure how to add it.)


7.00 lb Amber Liquid Extract (12.5 SRM) Extract 73.68 %

2.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM) Grain 21.05 %
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 5.26 %
(steep as needed 30-60min)
1.25 oz Chinook [13.50 %] (60 min) Hops 51.0 IBU
1.00 oz Chinook [13.50 %] (30 min) Hops 31.3 IBU
0.50 oz Chinook [13.50 %] (5 min) Hops 4.1 IBU

1.00 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 min) Misc
1 Pkgs Nottingham (Danstar #-) Yeast-Ale

Check the Jamil show on the brewing network, they did a show on Arrogant Bastard. I remember there was Special B in there too....and yes, your gonna need more LME....1.050 is only going to get you to ~5%abv....AB is 7 and change % abv.

If I remember correctly it was 2Row and Special B that was all....or Light LME and Special B....Special B was like 10% of the total grist.

cool well I will up my ME next time, maybe add some DME to get the OG up. I will also add some special B and see how it turns out. Thanks for the info.
Should I be dry hopping this?
Other than the ABV content and the special b is there anything else I could add to get it close to the original?

There was no dry-hopping with their recipe.
I just brewed up 5.25 gal. on 2-6 and so far it is pretty tasty. I hit 1.074 and Fg is 1.018 and mashed at 151ish. Another couple of weeks in the bucket and I will bottle it up.
