definitely start with the oak. it will take longer to impart its flavor than the hops will, and it will be more stable once it does. i'd probably not add the hops till the oak hits the level you want and then i'd remove it before adding the hops.

i've only oaked porters and stouts, so i can't really comment on the quantity of oak for an IPA.

I just had to change my hop profile because most of the hops I wanted were out of stock! I'm brewing Monday, could someone tell me if what I have looks okay or any other good suggestions? Thanks!

22lb 2 row
12oz Crystal 40l
4oz Crystal 20l
8oz Caramunich

1.5oz warrior 60 min (might do 1.75)
2oz Centennial 10 min
2oz Cascade 5 min
1oz Chinook 1 min
2oz Columbus 0 min

My store was out of Simcoe, Citra, and Athanum, so I had to swap out Centennial for Ahtanum and get rid of the 15min simcoe addition.

This was the original hop schedule
1.5oz warrior 60 min
2oz Simcoe 15 min
2oz Ahtanum 10 min
2oz Cascade 5 min
1oz Chinook 1 min
2 oz Ahtanum 0min

Do my substitutions look okay? What do you recommend dry hopping with? I want to do 3oz per 5 gallon carboy. Thanks!

Columbus hops are harsh, and "dank". I'd probably not use them at flame out, and exchange them with the centennial or cascade.

Great, thanks! New hop schedule looks like this

1.5oz warrior 60 min
2oz Columbus 10 min
2oz Cascade 5 min
1oz Chinook 1 min
2oz Centennial 0 min

With the switch and warrior at 1.5, total IBU count is 60

Any idea on what to dry hop with? I can still order hops online, so I was thinking maybe 1 oz ahtanum plus 2oz of something else per carboy. Thanks!

amarillo for dry hop? I love it! I do about 3 oz per 5 gallons but you may not need that much with the 2 oz boil additions late. amarillo/centennial/cascade/colombus dry hop....0.5 oz ea sounds pretty good!

Ahtanum and Citra is a great combo

Awesome, thanks! Should my DHs match my hop profile? I really want to try Ahtanum (or Amarillo), so maybe 1oz Ahtanum (or Amarillo), 1oz Centennial 1 oz Cascade?
