If I recall correctly, dry hop 7 days in fermenter, then straight to bottle/keg.

Bah-I can't type coherently sometimes.

Originally meant ferment for 7 days, dry hop for another 7 after that, then bottle/keg, but that seems a little quick to completely ferment out (now that I look at it), so I'd go 14 days before doing another 7 of dry hopping. Edited recipe to reflect this.

Derp.

Cool with a big beer like this would have figured at least 3 weeks. What do you think about secondary fermentor after 14 then dry hop for the 7 days. Figure it would give it time to clear out as well? Sample tasted good

I hardly ever use a secondary (mostly because I only have one other bucket & I use it for bottling...!), but it's not a bad idea.

Good to hear someone else likes it, even flat & warm!

I put together my own IIPA with an OG around 1.085 and 120 IBU, but I may tone it down and go with this recipe. Looks amazing. Thanks!

I'm going to try and brew this tomorrow, but my LHBS was out of Amarillo and Simcoe hops. I picked up Ahtanum hops as a replacement, but I was wondering if you had any other suggestions? Also, when did you add the Irish Moss to the boil? Thanks.

I've found that Chinook & Amarillo go well together, so I'd use some Chinook if you can't find Amarillo. Just use a bit less because Chinook's AA is around 13 compared to Amarillo's 8ish.

Also, I add my Irish Moss at 15 minutes left in the boil for every beer I brew.

I got a pound of Chinook (only amount they had at the LHBS) so I'm covered in that department, but I suppose I should have phrased my question a little better. It seems that the Amarillo and Simcoe are used more for aroma than flavoring (judging by the addition times), so I'm wondering what a good substitute for aroma hops would be in this instance and if Ahtanum would work? Is there anything else that might be a good substitute as well?

That should do it for rambling hops thoughts, and thanks for the help CTown!

Just got done brewing this tonight. Went with Chinook for the 60 and 30 minute additions and used Ahtanum and Warrior hops for the 15 and 5 minute additions. This is my first attempt at brewing (brewed 2 batches of Mr. Beer before) so we will see how it turns out. Ended up with a 1.073 OG.
