I brought the IBU's down to 50.4 by cutting the hop amounts so that I ended up with 2 oz of each hop. OP's recipe calls for 5.5 oz and lists IBU at 44, but beersmith gave me around 60 (I think) so I dropped it down. I also did that because I don't like having 1/2 oz's lying around in the freezer.
Anyhow, the beer does not seem bitter at all at 50 IBU. I am very happy at how it came out so there is another batch fermenting in the next room.
