5 gal batch
60 min boil

12 lb 2-row
8 oz C20
8 oz C60

Mash at 154 for 60 mins, no mash out

0.5 oz Warrior 16.7% @ FWH
0.5 oz Columbus 15.2%, Simcoe 13.5%, Zythos 10.5% @ 15
0.5 oz Columbus 15.2%, Simcoe 13.5%, Zythos 10.5% @ 5
0.5 oz Columbus 15.2%, Simcoe 13.5%, Zythos 10.5% @ 0

Dry hop with 0.5 oz Columbus, Simcoe, Zythos, 1 oz Ahtanum @ 4 days before bottling

WLP 051 Cali V Yeast 70F 2 weeks primary, 2 weeks secondary.

I feel like I should add more crystal, but mashing at 154 might give me the malt profile I need. I was thinking I could even add a bit of Munich or something. As far as the hops, this is just what I have planned and I am flexible with it. The following is my current hop inventory.

ahtanum 3.4% 1 oz
cascade 7% 3 oz
centennial 11.4% 4 oz
columbus 15.2% 4 oz
fuggles 5.7% 2.6 oz
hallertauer 3.2% 1.5 oz
liberty 3.9% 3.75 oz
magic hop dust 7% 5 oz
northern brewer 10.6% 2 oz
saaz 4.5% 1 oz
simcoe 13.5% 2 oz
warrior 16.7% 2 oz
willamette 4.7% 4.3 oz
zythos 10.5% 2 oz

Any suggestions?

Munich is superb in an IPA/IIPA recipe. Swap out a pound or two of base malt for munich if you feel like it.

I'd dry hop for 7 days and go with 1 oz warrior, 1 oz centennial, 1 oz columbus, 0.5 oz simcoe, and 0.5 oz zythos (skipping the Ahtanum).

My grain is mixed and milled already, so no swapping out. Thanks for the input, I really wanted to add more dry hops but was unsure how much of what I ought to do. I am going to toss in an additional pound of Munich as well.

I added 2 lbs of Munich to this recipe. Very poor efficiency though, was aiming for 1.078 but got 1.068. Tasted great after primary and is sitting in secondary now with an SG of 1.015, lower than anticipated. I dry hopped last night with 1 oz Warrior, 1 oz Centennial, 1/2 oz Columbus, 1/2 oz Simcoe, and 1/2 oz Zythos. I am hopefully going to keg this on Friday, but I might have to bottle if we don't empty a keg in time. Cheers!

Sounds like a great beer. You'll be glad you didn't add the extra crystal.

Oh my... This beer kicks you in the face upon opening the bottle! Amazing aroma and it tastes incredible! Unfortunately, it has zero carbonation. I didn't expect it to be fully carbed after a week, but I expected at least a LITTLE. I suspect my priming sugar wasn't well mixed or the yeasties pooped out at some point (doubtful), but maybe it is just taking a little longer. Or that could have been a bad bottle. I will check again next week.
