Should produce a nice dry IPA. Go for it!

Looks pretty good. maybe think about a little more crystal for all that base grain. i like crystal 60 its pretty standard. with the mash temp & corn sugar expect it to be pretty dry

I think you have too much C-pils. A big beer will be malty enough. IIPA's need to be on the dry side because of all the malt or they could be too "sweet". Might want to cut it in half.

With your low mash temp & corn sugar. Don't worry about residual sweetness. Carapils will contribute to mouthfeel

btw, carapils has very little flavor just a lot of unfermentable dextrin but 1# with 17# of base will be fine. Have fun and report back!

Lots of good info here. Oxygen is def something I'm worried about. I have no way of oxygenating other than the "pour, pour, pour, shake your balls off" method. Suggestions?

Might be ghetto but I sanitized my racking cane, attached the long straight end to my drill and whipped the hell out of my dipa a and wheat wine. Both fermented out fine.
