That would be fair, it would put you in the same situation European homebrewers are! Even if Cascade is quite easy to find, the other ones go from ""not that easy" (centenial, galaxy) to impossible (Nelson, Simcoe...)
So I'd love to see what you can do and get some cool recipes for IPAs based on hops I can actually get in Ireland.
I brewed a Summit (and a slight bit of Chinhook) based IPA which turned out quite good according to IPA drinkers.

I've mad quite a few IPAs and never bought any of the five above, besides Cascade, which I don't think is as hyped, and isn't certainly new.

Try Palisades, Southern Cross (NZ), Pacific Jade (NZ), Columbus, Falconers Flight, Ahtanum, Apollo, Chinook, Mosaic, Horizon.

All some good American-style hops

Lets do it with malt too. Avoid 2 row, MO, pale malt and wheat malt and see what we can come up with.

Brewing with plain water is just too commonplace for this experiment.

Grains & Yeast will not be excluded..
Here is what I am thinking so far..
Now we are up to Amarillo, Cascade, Centenial, Citra, Motueka, Nelson and Simcoe
And Style is as follows::
14B. American IPA

Aroma: A prominent to intense hop aroma with a citrusy, floral, perfume-like, resinous, piney, and/or fruity character derived from American hops. Many versions are dry hopped and can have an additional grassy aroma, although this is not required. Some clean malty sweetness may be found in the background, but should be at a lower level than in English examples. Fruitiness, either from esters or hops, may also be detected in some versions, although a neutral fermentation character is also acceptable. Some alcohol may be noted.

Appearance: Color ranges from medium gold to medium reddish copper; some versions can have an orange-ish tint. Should be clear, although unfiltered dry-hopped versions may be a bit hazy. Good head stand with white to off-white color should persist.

Flavor: Hop flavor is medium to high, and should reflect an American hop character with citrusy, floral, resinous, piney or fruity aspects. Medium-high to very high hop bitterness, although the malt backbone will support the strong hop character and provide the best balance. Malt flavor should be low to medium, and is generally clean and malty sweet although some caramel or toasty flavors are acceptable at low levels. No diacetyl. Low fruitiness is acceptable but not required. The bitterness may linger into the aftertaste but should not be harsh. Medium-dry to dry finish. Some clean alcohol flavor can be noted in stronger versions. Oak is inappropriate in this style. May be slightly sulfury, but most examples do not exhibit this character.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium-light to medium-bodied mouthfeel without hop-derived astringency, although moderate to medium-high carbonation can combine to render an overall dry sensation in the presence of malt sweetness. Some smooth alcohol warming can and should be sensed in stronger (but not all) versions. Body is generally less than in English counterparts.

Overall Impression: A decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong American pale ale.

History: An American version of the historical English style, brewed using American ingredients and attitude.

Ingredients: Pale ale malt (well-modified and suitable for single-temperature infusion mashing); American hops; American yeast that can give a clean or slightly fruity profile. Generally all-malt, but mashed at lower temperatures for high attenuation. Water character varies from soft to moderately sulfate. Versions with a noticeable Rye character (“RyePA”) should be entered in the Specialty category.

Vital Statistics: OG: 1.056 – 1.075
IBUs: 40 – 70 FG: 1.010 – 1.018
SRM: 6 – 15 ABV: 5.5 – 7.5%
