Much better on the changes (I think). Perhaps someone else can comment as well.
When I originally made this thread I messed up on the IBU's for the IPA. It was supposed to say 65.

I like the changes. I am a strong proponent of full volume boils. But as long as your program calculates appropriate levels for topping off, you should still have some tasty beers on your hands.

I would do full boils if I could. I live in an apartment so I'm kind of limited on the amount of space I have. One of these days when I have more space I'll be buying a turkey fryer.

The only other piece of advice I would give is to focus on Columbus late for the IPA and Cascade late for the APA. You should use both hops in both beers, but try to switch up the emphasis of Columbus/Cascade on the late additions for a different hop character.

Example:

IPA

Using more Columbus @ 10 and/or 0 than Cascade

APA

Cascade focus in the dryhop supplemented by Columbus

What about this for the IPA:
1 oz Columbus 60
1 oz Columbus 20
1 oz Columbus 10
1 oz Columbus 0
1 oz Columbus dry
2 oz Cascade dry

And this for the pale ale:
.5 oz Columbus 60
.5 oz Columbus 20
2 oz Cascade 10
2 oz Cascade 0
1 oz Cascade dry
2 oz Columbus dry

Well, I ordered everything for both of these recipes. I plan on brewing the pale ale within a week or so and the IPA a month or so after that. I'll update this post with my results. Thanks again for all of your help.
