Your IBUs are off because you show the 60 min hop addition as only boiling for 1 min (should be 1 hr). You're probably in the 140 range.

BTW, why both a 90 and a 60 min addition. I would think that adding all of the hops at either 60 or 90 min would work about the same.

Are you trying to make a beer that tastes like grapefruit? I read on the internet that simcoe hops make your beer taste like grapefruit.

Looks good. I'd think about a 90 min mash at 148, especially if you're shooting for 1.014

Good luck,

A lame misogynistic video if you ask me. As to Simcoe - my favorite hops in combination, by itself though, not so much.
