If you are using beersmith, you can edit the attenuation percentage of the yeast to correct this problem. Beersmith might assume 70% attenuation, but if you have used the particular yeast before and know you get 75%, you can change it. I had the same problem with the high FG predictions until I realized this. Just thought I would throw that out there if you weren't already aware of that feature...

Great suggestion. I'm brewing a double batch this weekend of this same recipe (since the first one went too quick) and will plug the attenuation percentage into BeerSmith. I'm going to split the batch up and use two different yeasts though. One will be the WLP002 that I used the first time and one will be the WLP007 which was mentioned that Stone uses now. It will be interesting to see the results. I'll report back!

Sounds like a good plan. I'm sure they will both turn out great, but I'd be interested in how you think they both compare to stone ipa. I love a good stone ipa.
