3 oz of hops in an IPA is quite small... even less than I'd put in an American Pale Ale. I'd keep the bittering charges where they are, and then double or triple the late hops additions and dry hop. Malt bill looks good to me.

Looks pretty good to me...I'd add a little bit of crystal...but you dont have to. I wouldnt worry about hops in oz...its about the alphas. There is an arguement on hop amounts and flavor. I think that youll be fine. A real fruity ipa, think it will be delicious.

I agree, I think 71 ibus makes for a great balanced IPA against a 1.070 grain bill. Don't get me wrong I love a good hop bomb but I save that for my double IPAs. Also I only have access to 2 oz of citra since it is pretty hard to come by which is why I supplemented with the 7c's.

Also, I was thinking about adding 2-4 oz of chocolate, mostly for color. I could also use black patent or roasted barley

Sounds to me like you want to brew with what you have available. No problem with that, just won't taste like an IPA. 1.070 is getting near IIPA territory. The bitterness will be there, but .25 oz. of late hops and only .75 oz. of dry hops will give you very little hop aroma and flavor. It'll be a big malty beer. Nothing wrong with that... just not an IPA, especially the west coast IPAs you are likely used to.

I just picked up 2 oz of citra as well. What would be a good companion with the 2 oz of citra if I was going to use it on this recipe as the dry hop?

Now that you point it out, it wouldn't have much of the citra aroma or flavor which is what I am wanting. I do however disagree that it wont be an IPA. To me an IPA is really about bitterness first then aroma. I agree that the West Coast IPA has changed that but it is not my belief. I edited the recipe to move the citra down to .5 at 15 .5 at 5 and 1 ounce dry hop.

I agree that 71 IBU's seems a bit low. I would encourage you to up, at least, the 60 min addition to get some more bitterness out of this beer. Either way, I'm sure its going to taste great. Also, not sure .75 oz of Citra will get you the hop aroma that you are looking for but then, I don't know what you are looking for. As a reference, I usually use 2 oz of citra in my IPA's just for dryhopping.

Using chocolate or roasted in an IPA would be unusual. Crystal 40 or 60 is a much more common addition. For me , at least, I think that would taste better with Citra.
