You could change the 30 min Amarillo addition to 15 min and double it to 2 oz (or more), if you wanted more flavor with about the same IBUs.

I think you're right about putting more in the dry hop too.

For the second schedule, you could consider changing the 30 and 45 min additions to Amarillo (since it sounds like you have more of it) and then add those hops instead at 15 or less for more variety in your flavor/aroma.

That is, unless, you enjoy the aroma and flavor of Amarillo above the rest!

I do like Amarillo a lot but wanted to try some new hops (for me) columbus and chinook. If I do that swap and have more C's towards the end will they be overpowered by the 3oz Amarillo DH?

The dry hop will pretty much just be aroma. I bet you'd still taste the C's, and having their flavor/aroma to offset the Amarillo, even if just a little bit, would be good IMO. This is after just having brewed an Amarillo/Pale Ale Malt SMaSH.

Unless you're entering a competition with it, honestly don't bother with the dry hopping. You're just throwing money down the drain, and if you bottle, doubly so as the oxygen scavenger caps also like hydrocarbons and soak up hop aroma.

But sub in some of your late additions as FWH. You'll get as much bittering as roughly 20 minute addition (Gordon Strong) and tons of aroma and flavor. Also, I'd increase the amounts of late hop additions and do 40ish IBU with your bittering. Loading up on the late additions gives you more aroma and flavor. My IPAs have been better since adopting this practice.

Your volumes are curious to me, however, if those are standard for you nothing to worry about, I just find them odd.

Why would a dry hop be a waste of money? Aroma plays a big role in the overall experience, especially with IPA's and IIPA's. To each his own, but I would definitely dry hop this. I just wouldn't be satisfied myself without that big aroma. To the OP, I do agree that something seems like it might be off with your volumes...

Holy cow, no! Dryhop ANY IPA or IIPA. You can bottle an IPA and IIPA just fine, but don't age them. They are meant to be drunk fresh.
