Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: White Labs California Ale (WLP001)   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.046   
Final Gravity: 1.011   
IBU: 37.7   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 6.6   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 5   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10   
Tasting Notes: None   

Just looking for some feedback before I brew this recipe. I'm trying to brew a basic, sessionable pale ale with hops that I already have. Looking for a west coast hop aroma, taste, etc.

8.5lb Pale Malt (2 Row)
.5lb Crystal 60 (for color)
.375oz Columbus at 60min
.25oz Centennial at 40min
.25oz Citra at 25min
.375oz Cascade at flame out for aroma
Ferment with White Labs California #001 or San Diego Super Yeast (haven't decided)

Again, hop quantities are due to the fact that I already have them.

Shooting for 35 to 40 IBU and below 5% ABV.

Thanks for any advice!

Sounds good. At mid thirty ibus, and a mash temp of 152 for an hour, should be good. Wyeast 1056 or 1272 would be a good choice on yeast, ferment at 66ish.
