OK so I wanted to make a light colored IPA with a simple grain bill and focuses on Cascade hops. This recipe is for 6 gallons at the end of the boil which gives me about 5 gallons into the keg. This recipe turned out great the first time I brewed it and wouldn't change a thing. It's really hoppy.
Extract w/ grains:
1# Crystal 15
1/4# Crystal 40
1# Table sugar.
2oz Cascade 7.1% AA 60 mins
1.5oz Cascade 7.1% AA 10 mins
1.5oz Cascade 7.1% AA 5 mins
1.5oz Cascade 7.1% AA 0 mins
1oz Cascade 7.1% AA dry hop
Yeast: Safale OS-5 works great. Nottingham might work OK as well. Wyeast 1056 American Ale or While Labs 001 Cal Ale would probably work just fine too.
All Grain; Sub out the extract for 10# of two row and mash at 150-152 degrees. I like the table sugar and low mash temp to help get a low FG. This helps the hops shine. This is just my preference but do whatever you want with it.
I enjoy an IPA that finishes dry and has lots of hop flavor and aroma. That is what this beer is all about.
