Run your recipe through a calculator like this: http://beercalculus.hopville.com/recipe

Aim for an SRM color of 30 or higher for a truly black IPA.

Agreed with Jay, also like others echoed you might want to use Carafa 1, 2, or 3... and more hops

One of my favorite recipes for an IIPA gets me in the brown catagory. I only consider it a hoppy brown ale if I use an english yeast. But like some of the posters have said, who cares unless you are entering it into a comp.

my calculated srm was 39.8 and my bipa is black. My Imp Stout I brewed has one that the srm is 75.2! That one is super black hole.

Btw, throw up some pics

Will do when I get home. I'm hoping it darkens up once everything settles a bit but I'm not counting on it

This was my last stout that measured 40 SRM. If yours is truly 44 SRM you should be black as night!

So your's looks more of a brown color in the glass? Might you have pics? Is it possible you diluted it more than you meant too?

8 oz of Midnight Wheat in a 3 Gallon batch should give you "Black"! If it isn't Black I'd guess the 20 minute steep wasn't very effective
