Default First IPA

I'm planning on brewing my first IPA tomorow and was wondering if anyone could give me some good tips, anything will work. I' useing centennial hops whole flower. I was going to encorporate some pacific gems, but I'm not sure if this is a good idea? using victory gold barley, some second row, and oats.
hop scedual: 1oz cenennial @ 45 min; 1oz pacific gem @ 30; 1oz centennial @ 45 min; and 1oz centennial @ 30 min. this is a 4 gal batch, will i need more hops?

That's going to be one hoppy beast.

What exactly is your recipe?

4 oz of hops in a 4 gallon batch??? Man - YOU are a hophead! I like Cascades or Amarillo hops for IPAs. The Centennial is not a bad choice for bittering hops though.
