If you are using Beersmith, it makes it pretty easy. If the gravity values above are correct, it is reasonable that you will come up with a Double IPA. Probably want to have your first batch targeting 75-80 IBU.
If you have the hops already, then enter the Alpha Acid values into your recipe.
My bet is that a .75 ounce addition of Magnum at 60 min and a 2 min addition of .75 oz each of Citra and Cascade will put your numbers where you want them and the taste will be all Citra Cascade. If you want a little more IBU, move the late boil to 5 min. if this idea comes up short, a small addition at 20 min is a nice place to adjust the IBU's.
Put the rest into after boil additions (hop stand and dry hop) and the flavor will be quite nice.
My DIPA's (5 gallon batch) have about three oz of hops in the boil. I like to come in low on the IBU range, but I pile hops into the whirlpool and dry hop (5 oz whirlpool, 6 - 7 oz dryhop). Not as firmly bitter, but boy, what a flavor!
