Thinking of brewing a beer like this and just wondering which version you liked better and/or if you have further tweaked it?

I preferred the second version. The black malt came through a bit more. I'm not sure that I would change anything at the moment. My plans are to make the second version again in a few months.

Final tweaks are done and I'm sticking with this version (which is close to the others posted in this thread):

Code:
Back in Black IPA
-----------------
Batch Size: 6.00 gal (10.15 gal preboil)
Estimated OG: 1.068 SG
Estimated FG: 1.016 SG
Estimated IBUs: 72 (Tinseth)
Estimated Color: 44 SRM
Brewhouse Efficiency: 70%
Boil Time: 90 minutes

Grains:
12.13# Maris Otter Malt (4.0L) (75.78%)
1.63# De-bittered black malt (413.0L) (10.16%)
1.38# Caramel/Crystal 60L (60.0L) (8.59%)
0.25# Caramel/Crystal 75L (75.0L) (1.56%)
0.63# Carapils/Dextrine (2.0L) (3.91%)

Hops:
1.50 oz Centennial (8.3%) @fwh
1.25 oz Cascade (5.3%) @20 min
1.00 oz Centennial (8.3%) @20 min
1.25 oz Cascade (5.3%) @5 min
1.50 oz Columbus (14.5%) @5 min
2.00 oz Cascade (5.3%) @0 min
1.00 oz Columbus (14.5%) @0 min
1.00 oz Cascade (5.3%) (dry hop)
1.00 oz Columbus (14.5%) (dry hop)
1.00 oz Centennial (8.3%) (dry hop)
1.00 oz Simcoe (11.8%) (dry hop)

Yeast:
White Labs WLP001 (California Ale)
3500mL starter with 1 vial; allow to ferment, crash cool, decant, and pitch

Mash/Sparge Schedule:
Single Infusion, 155F; Batch Sparge

Fermentation Schedule:
14 days @66F
6 days @70F (dry hop)
3 days @35F (crash cool)
This beer is great in that you get that over-the-top hop aroma and flavor that blends well with the roast early on. As the beer matures, the hop aroma (and some flavor) fades a bit to reveal a more roasty character. I love how the beer changes throughout its life. I can't say what it's like after three months because I can't keep any that long!

Add a little Dark Belgian Candi Syrup. You'll be REALLY glad you did

Enjoy it! I am brewing this more often now, particularly in the colder months. It is a great brew. And like I said before, the hops are the focus early on and fade over a few months to reveal more of the roast from the carafa. If you want more roast early on, a less aggressive dry hop and flavor hop addition would help. I *may* try this next time.
