Turned out great. One of my favorite IPAs. I'd like to do it again with Cal Ale just for comparison but it was a really fruity, solid IPA. FG was 1.011.

Brewed a slightly modified PM of this on 10/17. Measured, tasted and dry hopped last night. (2) packs of US-05 took the gravity from 1.082 to 1.016. As soon as I removed the lid, you could already smell the citra hops. I have (3) more dry hops scheduled before bottling but it already tastes great.

Interestingly, having had a few pints and bottles of the real beer, I'm fairly certain the final gravity on this is south is definitely south of 1.010. The real beer is very, very dry.

I have a bottle left; I'll put it in the hydrometer tube to give it a test. I actually like the attenuation of using US05 around 1.012-13 better than I liked this year's version of the beer.

I'd be interested to see what you come up with as a fg. I brewed mine with Conan yeast and it got down to about 1.012. I dry hopped with 3 oz each citra and amarillo, going to start carbing it this weekend. Can't wait!

I brewed this up on Saturday but I added a 1/2 lb of Dextrose to try and dry it out a little more. I used 2 packs of the Mangrove Jack M44 which got rave reviews from the guys at my LHBS (one guy claimed that word on the street is M44 is the dry equivalent of the PacMan strain)

How did the Conan version come out? I've never had the original but want to try to use Conan on an APA, IPA and DIPA to see where it works best. I've had double citra in my sights for a while now.

I brewed this about 6 weeks ago...1.5 gal. Ended up getting so busy I missed the dry hop schedule and only added the first 12 day dry hop. After it sat on that for 2 weeks I decided to cut my losses and bottle as is. Well...had the first one last night and it was unbelievable. My new favorite.

Will be brewing this one again real soon and doing it right.

If that is correct (sulfate 1 ppm?) you need to get your sulfates up to about 300 ppm, calcium up to about 150. Do a search for "tasty mcdole water profile", he's got a good one, then download EZ Water or Brun water, they'll set you straight.
