Default Need IPA Recipe for beginner

A buddy (very good buddy) bought me my first home brew kit. I was hoping someone could share a very simple India Pale Ale recipe for my very first batch. Any advice out there?
Cheers
Norm

Check out this link to the B3 forums and their extract kit recipes. I brewed a few of these and they are quite good. It is a good starting point.

I'm finishing off my second keg of Brewer's Best IPA, and extract kit and lovin it. My wife is a wine drinker but won't drink anymore wine until this is gone.

Find a home brew shop or buy it online, you won't regret it!

This was taken from that site Blender posted:
Urban Knaves of Grain - Nectar IPA - Kit900 Extract

Malt
9 lbs Ultralight LME
.5 lbs Wheat Malt Extract

Grain
1 lb Aromatic
.5 lb Carapils

Hops
2 oz Centennial (60 min)
1 oz Centennial (10 min)
1 oz Wllamette (10 min)
1 oz Cascade (10 min)
1 oz Northern Brewer (10 min)
1 oz Cascade (0 min)

Secondary (dry hop):
1 oz Centennial
1 oz Wllamette
.5 oz Northern Brewer

Water Treatment
Whirlfloc (20 min)

Yeast:
White Labs - California Ale
Estimated OG Range 1.068 - 1.072

It isn't truly an IPA because it does not use British ingredients, but it'd be mighty tasty and hoppy.
A good tip for extract brewers is to always use light or extra light malt extract and use steeping grains for your color. With an IPA look for a nice orangeish color. Fermentation temp and sanitation are two of the most important things to watch out for.

Don't boil the grain!!!!

I second Ohio Dave. The Brewers Best IPA is a good one. I made it several times before switching to all grain.
