Default First go at an extract IPA recipe

So... I may be swinging in the dark a little on this one, but I thought, "What the heck!"

8lbs - Briess Dry Malt Extract Golden Light
.4 lbs Briess Victory Malt Crushed 6 row - Lovibond

Hope Schedule

60 minutes - .25 Nugget/ .25 German Magnum/ .25 Centennial
45 minutes - .25 Nugget/ .25 German Magnum/ .25 Centennial
30 minutes - .25 Nugget/ .25 German Magnum/ .25 Centennial
15 minutes - .25 Nugget/ .25 German Magnum/ .25 Centennial
0 minutes - 1.00 oz Centennial

Wyeast 1272 American II

OG - (I think that I screwed this up) 1.12 @ 80 degrees Fahrenheit

Let the feedback begin!

Cheers

Oh yeah, I almost forgot... it is fermenting at 68 degrees going strong 24 hours after pitch (7/1/12 @11:30pm CST) and still rocking and rolling today! I plan on dry hopping 1.0 oz of Centennial after 2 weeks on primary.

Wow! That is going to be a HUGE beer if the OG is 1.120! What volume was it? 5 gallons?

1.120?!?! Are you sure you weren't supposed to top up with a few gallons? What's your volume/batch size?

You should have been around 1.065 then, which will leave you with about 6% ABV

How do you get the calculations on the projected OG using the ingredients?

By using the boil volume, batch size, efficiency, and the ppg rating(s) of the product(s) supplied by the maltster. For instance, http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Ass...enLightDME.pdf

OK... so with this specific beer I would use this equation - SGP = W(Lbs) * EP (GP/lb) * EE/V(gallons) which would be x/5 = 8 * .75 * 1/5? I think I am doing something wrong... argh! I am getting 6 SGP which would be only 1.006 as an OG which is way off... I am not sure what I am doing wrong... HELP?!
