This looks very similar to the one I just made not too long ago...
only difference...I used some Corn sugar to boost it and my hops were slightly different, Replace your warrior with Columbus and your simcoe with Citra!

My buddies and I really enjoyed it, I shoulda made 10 gallons instead of 5!

nice one! ive heard though citra in the kettle for flavor additions can be kinda harsh. ive actually made this same recipe with columbus/bittering and it was great. ive also done corn sugar to boost and dry it out and it was fine. if i want a dryer beer now ill just mash at 149...

I just brewed a 5 gal batch of this recipe over the Memorial day weekend. I did too replace the Warrior with Columbus. The fermentation chamber smells awesome. This will be my first time using 4 oz for dry hopping. All my other IPA batches used half of that. I bet this is going to be a tasty one.

Nice, you"ll be happy with the Columbus bittering. Dont be afraid to try dry hopping half (2oz) for 7 days, then the other half for another 7 days. 14 days total with the first round. Crazy aromatics, Cheers...

I like your recommendation on the dry hopping schedule. My plan will be to equally split my dry hop quantity between the two additions unless you have a better recommendation on which hops to add in each of the two additions.

85% attenuation from WLP001 with a starting gravity of 1.076? That seems reallllllly high. Did you use any sugar?

Not on this particular batch, but i have subbed 3% 2row for corn sugar in the past. Ive had WLP001 go down to 1.008 before. I usually mash 148-150 to have a really dry beer...
