Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: White Labs #WLP001   
Yeast Starter: Yes   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.090   
Final Gravity: 1.021   
IBU: 136.6

14.75 lbs 2 Row (US)
1.00 lbs Munich
.25 lbs Crystal 20L

1.00 lbs Corn Sugar added at boil start
Whirlfloc tablet added @ 15 min

2 oz Centennial (10% Alpha) @ 60 min
2 oz Chinook (13% Alpha) @ 60 min
1 oz Centennial (10% Alpha) @ 15 min
1 oz Galena (13% Alpha) @ 5 min
* 2 oz Galena (13% Alpha) Dry hopped for 7 days
All my hops were in pellet form

1000mL starter of #WLP001 California Ale

I used 1 tbs of 5.2 Mash Stabilizer in my strike water

Mash in with 5 gallons of water at 167.1F and hold mash @ 155F for 90 minutes
Drain Mash Tun and sparge with 3.67 gallons of water @ 168F
Boil volume should be 6.50 gallons
Flame on and boil for 60 min to get a final volume of 5 gallons into primary.

I had a bunch of BMC drinkers, and "I don't like hoppy beer" drinkers destroy a keg of this in no time at a BBQ in my backyard. It destroyed them in return, with an ABV of about 9%
I need to work on my brewing to drinking ratio. My production has not been keep pace with demand.

I know this is a old post but its still the top result on Google for All Grain IPA, if the OP is still here or of if anyone knows the annswer to the following question that would be tits. Was the corn sugar added just to bring up the OG? and if so is it needed? I want to try this but Im not a fan of adding extra sugars if they arent needed.
Carbonating: High Five IPA
Secondary: Black Eye Porter
Primary: For The Pink IPA
Next up: some stout

Adding corn sugar to the boil will bring up the gravity and eventually the abv but because it's pure fermentable sugar the yeast will be healthier and "eat" more of your wort resulting in a lighter bodied beer.

Gonna give this recipe a go on Monday!

I've made this beer twice now and cannot seem to hit the target gravity.

The first attempt was my first ever all-grain brew and I only achieved an OG of 1.062. I mashed and sparged rather quickly and suspect that my grains weren't properly cracked (from Morebeer). The resultant beer was a light, bright, clean, and dry IPA that smelled delicious and was very drinkable. It turned out great.

After a few more all grain brews under my belt I decided to try this recipe again today. We mashed for 90 minutes at approximately 150 degrees and sparged with 170 degree water for one hour. The boil went well and once we took the reading (expecting an OG of close to 1.090) we had a whopping 1.065 gravity. I don't know what I'm doing wrong??

On the plus side, it should make a fantastic single IPA with a simple bready malt and heavy late hop additions with not too many bittering hops. I'm still excited to see how this turns out.

I replaced the Galena hops with Citra hops. The aroma is very nice
