Looks like a good recipe. That's what happens with competitions... One judge says something's broken, so in fixing it you create a new "problem" with another judge. Only, with an American IPA, I believe there is no such thing as over-the-top hop aroma, as long as the malt is still at least detectable. Congrats on your silver!
