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.

I forget exactly what Beersmith kicked out, I don't have it in front of me but I think it was around 55ish. Fermentation is finally slowing down. I had to switch to a blow off a few days ago. Luckily I checked it in the morning before going to work and discovered the airlock full of krausen and the fermenter building pressure!

Mine cleared up wonderfully after about 10 days in the keezer.

Kegged this beer yesterday and dry hopped. Gonna give it one more week at room temp to let the dry hops work their magic. FG was a little high finishing at 1.018, probably mashed too high (I've been having thermometer issues). Holy crap this beer tastes great though! I've been looking for a simple pale ale to keep on tap and this one might be it.

Just wanted to follow up. This recipe is solid! I've been drinking it for about a week now and it keeps getting better and better. It's a great session beer with tons of hop flavor. I'll be brewing this one again real soon.

Brewed this 6 weeks ago. Only had 3/4 oz. of Amarillo and the LHBS was out so I subbed Chinook at 60 and Cascade at 5 min. This was the best IPA I have ever brewed and would handily beat 85 to 90% of the commercial microbrew IPA's I have had. ( and I have had a few)

Thanks a million for a recipe I will surely put in my rotation!

Just brewed up 10 gals of this. I used whole hops, treated ro water, and I roasted 4 lbs of two row per dude's method. I used washed pac-man for 5 gals and a fresh vile of wlp001 for the other five gals with 1 liter starters for each. Each one is chugging away at 64 degrees and the smell is amazing. Looking forward to this one as it should have a nice hop taste and aroma that I have been looking for. I will post the final results once everything is fermented, dry-hopped, kegged and carbed.

Drinking this now and planning a 10G batch on Sunday. My only beef with this recipe is it, like 4 of my other favorite beers that I brew, uses expensive, impossible to find Amarillo hops! I love that hop and from what I have read there is a real shortage due to flooding of the hop fields this year. I am thinking that later this year when I run out of Amarillo and can't get it anywhere that I may have to substitute Cascade or Ahtanum (also hard to find). Anyone tried this recipe with either of those two hops? Other suggestions?

I made this today (for probably the 10th time). Usually goes off without a hitch, today my gas ran low and i didn't boil off what i needed to. I ended up at a final gravity of 1.044. Im worried that if I add all the hops in the dry hop it will now be balanced and be too bitter.

Should I add no dry hop, half the dry hop, or just do it all?

Dry hopping does not add bitterness, so I would do the full amount.
