Yes I know there ain't no such thing, but I want one.

What DRY yeast could I use? Recipe would just have

4.5 lbs of Pilsner
0.5 lbs of Munich
2 oz of Carafa I

1.5 oz of Magnum at 60 min
0.75 oz of Magnum at 10 min
0.75 oz of Magnum at 5 min

There is a local brewer here in STL that makes a "German IPA" and I'm pretty sure he uses Hallertau at least for finishing hops. That being said magnum would be good for your bittering addition. As for yeast to make it "authentic" I would use the Wyeast german ale strain.

I realize that it isnt a dry yeast. If you have to use DRY I would go with US05.

Thanks, I have some Hallertau but only .7 oz left. Could buy more.
I have lots of US 05 also have some Munich Wheat. Wonder what that would do to a non-wheat brew?

That's the beauty of home brewing. I've made some great batches with "leftovers". And further more when I first tried the aforementioned beer I had low expectations for it but it turned to be fantastic and has made my top 5 beers of 2011. I love citrus bomb IPAs but the earthy, spicy, and floral aromas and flavors from that beer make it a nice change of pace from the typical commercial IPAs.

Most likely, but will have to buy more hops. Still looking for a dry yeast, but might settle on US 05

I didn't get much aroma/flavour from magnum in the SMASH I did a few months back, with FWH and a massive late addition. I love magnum for bittering, but it's a bit lacking for anything else.

This beer sounds like a good idea.. but if you really want to do it right, what I would do is use Wyeast-3068 Weinstephan.

What would be good is doing a weizenbock that is heavily hopped. So pretty much a heffe but twice as much grain.

I would also use Halletauer or Saaz for the finishing hops
