collected 2.6 gallons first runnings
batch sparge 4.5 gallons @175--to get to 168 for 10min
collected 6.8 preboil
Final Batch was about 5.3gallons to primary

I kegged this beer and had multiple people taste it, compare it to flower power ipa, and nobody could tell the difference between my homebrew and flower power. I use a large grain bill because I only get about 65% efficiency. If your efficiency is more, then you might be able to slightly lower your grain bill, but why mess with this recipe at all if you like Ithaca Flower Power. I have made this beer many times, so you should feel comfortable to be able to reproduce this.
How long did you let it sit in the keg?

It takes me about 1 week to fully carb this beer in a keg. I rarely force carb it at a higher psi. I set it at 10-12 psi and wait a full week.

is this still the recipe you are using? i noticed later in the thread you said you changed some items in it. also noticed you said you are using 2 SA-05 yeast packs. have you ever used a yeast starter with this or does the 2 packs do the job? i am going to gather the ingredients for this and want to have the final recipe to go off of. thanks!

Here's the latest recipe:

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Safale US-05--- 1 or 2 packets
Yeast Starter: No
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.3
Original Gravity: 1.072
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 131
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 7
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 @ 68
Additional Fermentation: No
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 @ 66
Tasting Notes: Grapefruit, Pineapple, Citrusy-- just awesome!!!

Grains:
16.5 lb Briess 2 Row
6oz Honey Malt
3oz Briess Caramel 10L

Hops:
1.5oz Centennial @60
1.0oz Amarillo @45
1.0oz Simcoe @30
1.0oz Ahtanum @20
2.0oz Cascade @10
1.0oz Chinook @5
Irish Moss @15
dry hop: 1oz each of Amarillo, Chinook, Simcoe leaf for 7 days

I reduced the honey malt from 1 # to 6oz, and reduced the caramel from 40L to 10L and also to just 3oz. This greatly reduced the color. As far as a starter, I sometimes use Wyeast Whitebread 1099, in which case I use a starter. If I use Safale us-05, then I use 2 packets, which for me seems to eat up some sweetness and dry it out.

Those are wort temps. I ferment in my basement which is usually around 65-66 degrees. The first 2-3 days of fermenting it rises to 68-70 which works with this yeast.

I brewed a second batch of this for a 4th of July party this Saturday. My first batch was with a full pound of crystal and a full pound of honey malt. I screwed that up, but it was still a great beer, but a little too malty for my taste. This time I went with a half pound of each. Early taste from gravity samples are great and the malt profile is definitely lower. Will let you know how it scores at the party! Oh, and I made a apricot blonde that will satisfy all of the natty light guys.

Here's a pic of my last recipe with only 6oz honey malt and 3oz Crystal 10L. Not the best pic, but you can see how much lighter it is in color-- now only 7 srm.
