I don't like pimping my own posted recipes, but the DFH 60 minute close is pretty good! I really like the simcoe/amarillo combination. I just converted the Lakefront IPA clone to extract, but I've never done it as an extract. It should be very good, though.

I've made a Stone Ruination partial mash that was great. (Oh look - its Yooper's recipe!). Just checking my notes - I switched out some of the extract for 2 lb of corn sugar to get it to dry out (I find some extracts finish too high, and an IPA wants to be pretty dry). I'm actually just planning an all-grain re-brew.

Yoopers DFH 60 is great too, but I've only made the all-grain version.

I just made the Stone Ruination clone as well, but changed it up a bit.
Replaced the centennials for amarillo hops, then after 4 days in the secondary of dry hopping 2 oz of amarillo, I added another 2 oz of Citra that sat in there for 3 days. Also had a handfull of toasted oak chips in the secondary (total of 7 days in secondary). I steamed the oak chips before putting them into the secondary.

Came out amazing! Kegged it, waited a few days and now it's going fast.

My basic extract IPA recipe is.

8 lbs LME
1 lb Crytsal 40
2 oz Magnum
2 oz Chinook
2 oz Cascade

I steep the crystal at 160 for 30 min
add 1/2 the LME
mix the Magnum & Chinook and add .5 oz of mixture every 10 min
add remaining LME at flameout

Ferment for 10-14 days at 64F
dry hop with the cascade for 1 week

prime and bottle, condition for 3 weeks at 70F
chill and enjoy

If you want to do a great Double IPA, go to MoreBeer.com and get the Pliny the Elder, as it's $20 off right now plus $5.75 for yeast. Normally its $69. Or the Blind Pig IPA.

Not to hijack this thread, but i have been looking at doing an IPA for my next brew. Reading through the ingrediants in a lot of the "kit" ipa recipes it seems most of them are very light on the hops. Much lighter than I would expect. Some only 3 oz.? That just doesn't seem like an ipa to me? I suppose it would depend on the hops, though, but still? Thinking I'm going to forego the "kit" brews and use suggested recipes from the veteran brewers here and pull my own ingrediants from the LHBS.
