personally I don't think you should make an IPA black just for the sake of color...what is the point of that? Roastiness should be evident, but somewhat restrained. I think pale chocolate is perfect for this purpose, and in mine I actually used straigh up chocolate malt and it was very good. I think your recipe will be great.
I found it gave too much of a stout like flavor when i used it, off hand i don't remember how much i used, maybe .8oz or there a bouts.
