There are alot of variables that can change those values. Effiency will effect the Original Gravity and ABV, also the amount of Alpha Acids your hops actually have will affect the bitterness. How far off is the bitterness?
My suggestion is to be plug in all your variables (your typical effiency, your hops actual AA%, ect and see where it gets you. Scale the recipe accordingly.
