For mine - 2 weeks primary, 2-3 weeks secondary(bottle or keg). I took samples out of the kegs during secondary/conditioning and it tasted pretty green until about week 3 of conditioning. Could be earlier for some people but i like to put extra dry hops than some.

Your temp seems very high to me. The conventional wisdom for an IPA is to shoot for the upper mid 60s for a cleaner tasting beer.

Then again, you're the one whose drinking it so if you're happy with it then pay no attention to the pig in the shower.

Interesting how did this turn out? I was thinking 1056 and also, did you mean 65 by any chance? The temp range for 1968 is 64-72 according to wyeast.

They use 1968 in the IPA according to one of the brewers there. Temp was between 72-75. My house is a little on the warmer side. Really hope the extra 3 degrees won't affect it too much. Got it kegged and carbonating now, gonna wait til sunday to give a try. Will def keep you updated on how it turns out.

Awesome well I got the grains and hops and yeast yesterday, was able to find the simcoe. I'm going 1056 and ferment about 65 (measured by sensor taped to bucket and insulated)
