Sorry i couldn't be a little more specific in the title of this post. i was in particular wondering how much hops any of yall have used in around a 7 percent ipa for a 5 gallon batch. i think i might have just made hop tea with alcohol...

Yeah, don't worry at all about 7 oz. I think that's where IPA's just start getting good, personally.

That sounds pretty good!

The most hops I've ever used was 6 oz. Unfortunately, that batch was one of my failures at all grain brewing so I don't know how it tasted.

11oz. Surly Furious clone. Very good, but dry hops (3oz) faded quickly.

Pliney clone 14 oz there abouts.

Started in the mash tun and ended with about 6oz of dry hops. None of the hops were wimpy either all about 12% AA or higher. The wort tasted like sipping an acid solution, with a nice sugar balance. Drinking it took a while to adjust to, not having that much hops in an IPA took a while to adjust back to.
