The first time I made this, I used WLP005. At that time, I was doing extract. Since then, I stepped the IBU up to around 80 in which case I don't feel the more expensive WLP005 is any different to the Safale - 05. The higher IBUs scale down the yeast flavor...at least in my opinion. But, if you make this according the original recipe at 45 IBU, I would recommend the WLP005. I am becoming a hop head and the original recipe didn't have enough hops for my taste. So, either add more at the beginning of the boil or do more for late addition.

You'll be good. This beer is so bomb. I have it on tap now. Enjoy!

It really is a great beer. I think it is one of my all time favorites. The most recent batch I made used a half pound of Amarillo. And it still could have used more.

It'll be fine with 005. I like it best with Bell's Ale yeast or WLP051/Wyeast 1272, but WLP005 will make a fine beer with this recipe. The hops will pretty much dominate anyway.

That yeast will be fine. Just keep your fermentation temperature in the appropriate range and you should have a well attenuated and clean tasting IPA.

Thanks for the replies. Trying to grind through work then its time to brew! I'll leave an update when this goes into primary.

...

Brew day went well, my second batch was much smoother than the first time. I ended up adding hops in 1.5oz @ 60, 1oz @ 30, 1oz @ 7, and put the final .5oz in the the primary. The brew is happily bubbling away in the primary.

Thanks for the recipe and suggestions, I can't wait to dig into this one!

Just made up 5G's of a variation of this. Since I hadn't enough Amarillo, I made up the 15 and 5 minutes with Cascade and used Amarillo for the boil and flame out.

Smells fantastic. I mean like this smells like the beer that the guy in the Old Spice advert would drink. I'm thinking about splitting it and dry hopping some with some Bramling Cross I've got lying around just for the badness.

I made a batch of this about a week ago, and used the 005 with one lb. of 40 and Chinook at start of boil, followed with 1 oz. of amarillo every 15 minutes or so until flame-out which I then added 2 oz. of amarillo. I used to go from the primary to secondary and dry hop in the secondary for 2 weeks, but lost too much bitterness for my liking. This time, I think I'm going to go 10-14 in the primary, then keg with hops in the keg. Not sure whats going to happen with dry hopping in the keg. Never done it before. Any thoughts?

Brewed this up a while ago, just had it kegged and carbed. Pulled my first pint from it tonight...and my first impression is that it is very "fruity"!

I've never used Amarillo before, and this is my first go with the S-05 yeast, so not sure whether this fruitiness is from the hop or the yeast. I fermented at 64-66F..so I shouldn't be getting any fruity esters from the yeast, so I assume that the Amarillo is the reason for this fruitiness?

Is this the way this IPA is supposed to taste...or has something gone horrible awry?

That's typical. I actually ferment mine at around 70 with the s-05. I recently made this but used WLP-005. Too malty for me, but the hops helped out. Here is the recipe I used:

11.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 91.67 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 8.33 %
1.00 oz Chinook [12.40 %] (60 min) Hops 38.6 IBU
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [9.40 %] (45 min) Hops 26.8 IBU
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [9.40 %] (30 min) Hops 22.5 IBU
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [9.40 %] (15 min) Hops 14.5 IBU
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [9.40 %] (5 min) Hops 5.8 IBU
2.00 oz Amarillo Gold [9.40 %] (0 min) Hops -
1 Pkgs British Ale (White Labs #WLP005) [Starter 35 ml] Yeast-Ale

fermented for 2.5 weeks, then kegged. 6.8% ABV.
