Default Irish Stout IPA

I was given a beer kit from a friend Midwest Supplies a month back and after looking at the kit I have already made their Irish Stout before. What I wanted to do was make it but also try to make it more of a Black IPA. What are your thoughts on this recipe? What type of hops would you add ?

I've made one of the Midwest stouts and it was pretty good after 5 weeks but I don't know if you can turn that into a black IPA.
Many stouts use Willamette, Northern Brewer, Fuggles or Golding hops.
True stouts aren't hoppy while IPA's are hoppy to very hoppy.
Wherever you go, there you are!

Many black IPAs are black in color only...they use debittered malt and often steep the dark grains cold to extract the color but not much of the roasty character.

But, I have had "roasty" IPAs before (or hoppy stouts) and they're pretty good. Very interesting.

Willamette + Cascade would be a solid choice, IMO.
