I get 153 IBU's with a FWH addition, using Columbus instead. Does it taste that hot? I know IBU's can be deceiving.

153 IBU's will be fine. You won't notice much of a difference even if it was 90-100IBU's. It'll be great. Oh and with this recipe, the hop smell in the house is outrageously wonderful--love it. As far as 1 or 2 packets of US-05, I have done both. 1 packet knocked it down, but 2 packets knocked it down a little bit quicker. Either way is fine, totally up to you, I usually use 2 just to be safe, but it isn't necessary. Enjoy.

Have you done Yoopers 60 clone? The hop flavor and aroma are impressive for how little hops are used. If I make this I'll probably scale the hops back to 75 IBU's and continuously hop it, not that I don't buy your recipe I'm just trying to stretch my hop stash.

Just got done with everything . Pitched the yeast and SG was 1.072 dead on. So now when do I start the dry hop? And would it be ok if I just throw the hops in? Without putting in a bag? And I got pellets not leaf hops.

It's not my recipe and i haven't done it, yet. I would say two weeks primary is fairly standard, make sure your FG is stable. I dry hop 7-10 days, in a carboy just throw the pellets in, they'll settle to the bottom. Don't use a bag with a carboy, anything more than an ounce is tricky to get back out through the neck.

Thanks. It's in a bucket. So when do I put the hops in? About a week into fermention then let ferment about 7-10 days after I dry hop.

I'd check gravity at 10 and 14 days, if no change I'd say throw in the hops. Some people don't like to dry hop more than 2 weeks, I do 7-10 days. If you choose not to use a secondary I would rack to a keg or bottling bucket with a 1 gallon paint strainer bag or something to reduce picking up the spent hops off the bottom.
