Personally, I'd make a bigger starter and give it time to ferment out and decant it. I usually go for a 2-3 qt. starter.

1.5 quart is all my stir plate will handle... And it's close to what Jamil's calc recommends. I'll see tonight if the starter looks like it's ready to crash overnight. If so, I'll decant in the morning, add another liter of starter wort and pitch in the evening... (10 hours or so later)

Not ideal, but my schedule is too tight the next few weeks...

Denny, I've taken your advice and letting the yeast go to completion, going to chill and decant and then add another 1-2 liter starter wort when it is ready. I'll let that ferment out to chill and decant for wednesday brew. I'll have close to 400 billion cells of healthy yeast. When I've spent all this money on such an important brew, might as well do it right...

Brewed this a few weeks back and took a sample during gravity reading. A few points away and still bubbling but it still tasted delicious and I can't wait to dry hop it and drink it! This thing's going to be a month in the primary though... Why must you taunt me this way?!?

yeah I did 10 G and I plan to do a rebrew in the next three weeks. This is a great cold or hot weather IPA IMO. Have been craving it lately....

Hope you like it as much as I do. I'd kinda burned out on porters before I came up with that recipe.

The only sub I'd recommend would be Hallertauer.
