If you are looking for hop flavor and aroma, you are going to need a whole heck of a lot more late hop additions.

Also, adjust your batch size to 5.5 or 6 gallons for the end of the boil. Hops will soak up wort, and you will be losing some to trub-loss. This way, you'll have 5 gallons when all is said and done.

I would dry hop with more and maybe with two seperate hops and move half of your 30min to either 15min or a FWH. I know that you want bitter, but you will get a lot of the acid and bitter from upping your dry hop.

I like the rest though, looks solid. I am a huge fan of lighter colored IPA's

You could even move your 30 minute addition to 20 minutes to get a bit more flavor from it, and then add a 5 or 1 minute addition as well. No point in being subtle about late hop additions in this beer.

I would give it more something like this

1 oz mix Simcoe/Cascade/centennial ate each 15-10-5mark

And maybe even have some more for 0 min

Now you're cookin'. If you have to buy a whole 'nother ounce of centennial for the dry hop, you may as well dump the whole thing in there. I've seen recipes that use 4 oz. of dry hops on an IIPA, so I don't think you should worry about overdoing it. I think the low mash temp with the sweetness of the honey malt will make this a pretty nice beer- sweet but still fairly crisp. I'd sure drink it.

I was just thinking that you have quite a bit of caramel in there, and the honey malt. Even with a low mash temp, this may be a bit sweeter than I'd want. Maybe drop some of the caramel or honey and add a pound of corn sugar to lighten up the body a bit.

I like a bit of maltiness in my IPAs (fan of Hercules and dogfish heads 90 min) so Thats what inflenced the grain bill.

For the dry hopping I have already planned on adding an ounce of simcoe. Also thinking of changing to a 90 min boil. All hop additions will be the same except the magnum whic. Willbe for the full 90.

I'd recommend cutting the Crystal and Honey in half, mashing at 148 for 90 minutes, and subbing 2# of sucrose for some of that 2-row. After reading the lastest issue of Zymurgy, even Vinnie of RR agrees that an IIPA should finish low to lessen the malt profile and let the hops shine. 2# of sucrose will help you get that FG down.

A malty IIPA is like a 100 IBU Traditional Bock - it just ain't right.
