Default help with recipe

Hey guys.. Trying to come up with a recipe with a bunch of left over stuff.. Here is my list if ingredients and can i get your input?

6# Amber LME
1# Flaked oats
6oz Simcoe
1# Citra
3oz Amarillo
2# clover honey
US-05 yeast

I'm sorry if this is a very vague post but i'm still a beginner and looking for some ideas.. Was thinking of a Red wheat IPA brewed with honey roughly 60-70 IBU? Would like to buy as little additional ingredients as possible..

you don't have anything that is going to give you a red SRM and a beer with a OG of 1.042 and 60 to 70 IBU is going to be way out of balance.

Use the LME and the oats and maybe do like a blonde ale ?? You really need some type of specialty grain though. I would empty the couch of all loose change and go get a few lbs of specialty grains at least 8oz of crystal 10 or 20.

i'm not opposed to buying any specialty grains.. I just like to use up some of the " older " ingredients i have before i re-order more stuff..

Buying some specialty grains is fairly cheap, just not sure what goes good with " fruity " hops and amber LME

half tempted to do a SMASH with the Amber LME and either all simcoe or all citra..

I was just tossing that OG number out there since most IPA generally run about that with 6# of LME correct?

sorry just noticed you said amber lme. Yeah I would just smash it with simcoe. Just adjust your total volume with your 6lbs of lme for the OG you are looking for.
