Default Beersmith IBUs too high

I entered the recipe seen at the link below into BeerSmith and got some crazy numbers for IBUs. The recipe estimates 90-95 IBU, BeerSmith says 232(Tinseth). My boil times and volumes match what the recipe says. Any ideas? Thanks!

It explains it right on the recipe sheet. "Actual/not calculated" next to the IBUs

You will also note the recipe says "actual/not calculated" for the IBUs. When you get into the hopping levels that go into DIPAs like pliny, you will always calculate more IBUs than actually end up in the beer.

One thing I would recommend is changing around the IBU calculation method, so you can see how much it changes from one calculation to the other.

It def seems to calculate a bit too high on IBU's to me as well. Need to rain that back in a bit imo.
