Default Most hops you've ever used

So I have a bunch of hops that I should use up... what is the craziest you've ever gotten with the amount of hops you've added to a beer?

I'm thinking about doing some off the wall this week.

Not exactly crazy,but I used 6oz of hops in my IPA. The aussies on the cooper's forums thought me totally mad & foolish,to be polite. Then some of them came up here on brewcations & learned I'm not all that nuts after all. But the hops on my next Burton excursion are def gunna double at least.

A lb in an IIPA, (assuming we're basing this on 5 gal batches)

I've used a pound ...one beer I've made calls for 5 oz at flameout and 5 oz dry hop. My wet hop ale uses 40 oz for 5 gallons

I used 14 oz of hops in 2012's Helen Keller, my annual IIPA that features ~100 theoretical IBUs. That's for a 6 gallon batch. The cost effectiveness dictates its limited brewing ;-)

18oz in an IIPA I just kegged. 6oz in the boil, 5 oz in the whirlpool and 7oz in the dry hop for a 5 gallon batch. Mostly 7-Cs and Apollo. Tastes awesome.
