Here were my hop additions. I know that IBU calculations are notoriously fickle, but this is what got me to 34 IBUs.
Columbus 14% 0.5 ounces - 60 mins
Cascade 5.5% 0.5 ounces - 20 mins
Cascade 5.5% .25 ounces - 10 mins
Columbus 14% .25 ounces - 0 mins
It's been in the fermenter for 10 days now with the Denny's yeast. Took a sample and had a gravity of 1.012 (vs an expected FG of 1.013). This is surprising - my OG was on-point and I thought that fermentation was going more slowly than normal. I'm leaving it in the fermenter for at least 7 more days. Will let you know what FG I end up at.
I was worried that the wort wasnt hoppy enough. Well I just tasted my sample and I think it's turning out more balanced than I expected. It's very green with lots of yeast in suspension but still pretty good. I noticed that the rye flavor didnt come through as much as I thought it would. Hopefully it becomes more pronounced as the beer mellows.

I have 18% AA Columbus available and not doing the 20 minute addition and keeping the rest the same gets the IBU close to about 40. Considering brewing this next.
