While the "awesome" part was spot on, you sure you posted this to the right thread? "Lager"? "Touch of hops"? :confused:

For an IPA, you're right. I'm not only out of range on IBUs, but my OG is low as well. I was shooting for a hoppy APA. My gravity is fine (OG: 1.045-1.060 ), but I am at the low end of the IBU...

Over the weekend, I had a few friends sample it and they felt like it was somewhat hoppy after all. I'm wondering if maybe it's just the lower IBUs that makes it seem less hoppy than what I'm used...

I don't use a carb stone and I carbonate @ around 9-10 psi. I don't know exactly what temp the fridge is, but as it warms up it does get a little more flavorful, so I'm probably serving it a tad too...

Should this be hoppy?

My biggest complaint about my homebrew is its inability to retain hop flavor/aroma. Almost all of my beers are APAs, IPAs, or ambers, and they all focus primarily on the hops. I know these are...

Lots of folks routinely leave their beers in primary for a month+ before racking to a keg or bottling bucket. It'll be fine.

I just realized you said you would put an airlock on it. If you prime while it has an airlock, you wouldn't be carbonating the beer as the CO2 would escape. Prime it or force carb it in the keg. ...

Carboy's aren't meant to hold pressure, so don't try it!!! The beer will age just fine sitting comfortably in the keg whether you prime it or force carb it.

At that pressure it's not going to be very carbed yet. With that method, it seems like it takes around 2 weeks before it really seems like it's ready. Lately I've been doing a combination of the...

It's normal. Just don't jump the gun because there's no airlock activity. Give it at least a couple weeks for the yeast to finish fermenting it and to clean up after themselves. You're fine.
