Great job! Now's the hard part - waiting.
I'd suggest doing another one in a couple weeks to start "filing the pipeline" if you have an extra fermenter.

Congrats on the first time brew! It Is a wonderful hobby and you will find yourself addicted in no time flat. That is an awesome original gravity for your first brew, and you will be more than thrilled with the final results.

Waiting is a lot easier once you have your pipeline going. Congrats.

Congrats on the first brew success! I've had a Brewer's Best IPA, which was pretty good, so I think you should like the APA you made.

Now is the tough part, just forget it exists for like three weeks then bottle it up, then try one in another two to three weeks and see how its coming along! Your beer will thank you for your patience!

Make your second one soon. By the time your first is ready your second will finish fermenting. When your first is GONE your second will be drinkable.
