Ideas for tomorrow nights brew session would be greatly appreciated... I have the following:

HOPS:
saaz 1 oz
perle 1 oz
challenger 1/2 lb
lublin 1/2 lb

LME
7 lbs ultralight

Grain
2 lbs crystal 40L
1 lb wheat



My thought was to make a IPA!! Is that doable?

thanks for any ideas and input!

I'd be tempted to go with a pale ale with that stuff:

7 lb LME
1 lb Crystal 40
.75 oz Perle @ 60 min
1 oz Challenger @ 30 min
1 oz Challenger @ 0 min

OG 1.055
FG 1.014
8.6 SRM
44 IBUs
5.4% ABV

Disclaimer: I'm no expert.

An IPAS is not really "doable"

I'd +1 Rick500 recipe,
or just stick to all challenger and the LME, maybe steep 1/4# c40 and call it an english ordinaty bitter....

I put it into Beersmith just for kicks (assuming 5 gallons):

Est. OG: 1.060
Est. FG: 1.016
Est. ABV: 5.85%
12.5 SRM
42.2 IBUs

OG was around 1055, but I did top off to about 5.5 gallons.
