I prefer to rinse the grains for biab so I sparged with 2 gallons of 160-ish degree water. collected 6.5 gallons of wort which I boiled 60 minutes and ended up with 5.5 gallons in primary. I have two Thermoworks thermometers that I use to double check mash temp. That's probably too low of a temp to mash at in my system for this beer? Next time mash at 152-153 and up honey malt from .5 pounds to .75 pounds.
sounds like you are on the right track. I don't have a lot of experience with honey malt but everything I've experienced, read and heard points to not going beyond about 5% of the grist.

Just finished bottling my White Rajah attempt and as expected it has more of an alcohol bite but the flavor and aroma are really nice and if I can hit the numbers closer to the recipe and mash at a higher temp this has real potential to be close to the original. I won't alter the recipe at all except the mash temp. I'll post again when it's carbonated.

Its carbonated now and while it is good it isnt White Rajah too high abv and hop flavor a bit to floral to be Rajah. The color is very close. I'm happy to drink it though as it's very tasty. I have tweaked the recipe I used a little to address the issues I have with it. If you would like i will post the recipe I brewed and the revised one that way I could get some thoughts from others. I want to make an ipa that is even close to White Rajah as it is the best beer I have ever had.

Notes
Even with just 0.5oz of Columbus at 60 min attempt#1 is too bitter. The floral notes are too strong for White Rajah and it lacks that slight dankness that Rajah has. The beer is also too dry and too boozy. To correct those issues I decreased Columbus at 60 and centennial & Summit at 20 and 0. Increased all Citra additions and Columbus at 0 and DH.
Mash temp increased to 152
