Just curious. I have a 5 gallon batch of DIPA on tap that had 4oz of high aa hops added as first wort hops, 6oz in the 0-30 minute range, 3 oz dry hops and 2oz keg hops. That's just shy of a pound. Its truly an amazing beer, but truthfully, I wouldn't be scared to go bigger. The large malt bill and 4 lbs of munich really stands up to them. The level of complexity in the hop profile is amazing. Its layered from the time you open the tap to minutes after you finish the beer.

Cant wait to try an even bigger ipa next time. Eventually I'll work up to something as big as a 120 minute ipa

My DIPA recipe had almost a pound of hops in it for a 5 gallon batch. It was about as hoping as I'd ever want a beer to be.

*Just double checked, it was 12 ounces including 3oz in the dry hop.

Currently have a 5g batch of DIPA dry hopping on 8 oz (2 each of Citra, Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade) that had another 16 oz in the kettle.

Previously about 7 oz in 5 gallons. My next IPA will have 9-10oz in 5 gallons.

Did a Pliney the Younger clone with 14z in 5g (about half was dry hop) plus 6 hop shots in the boil. It's awesome.

Have a Pliny-esque clone that used 28 oz of hops in a 10 gallon batch. Wish I'd have used more honestly.

The most I've used was yesterday. I brewed a 6 gallon batch of Double IPA. I used 13 oz and will dry hop with another 3 oz for a total of 1 lb.

Wow... pound and a half total. Impressive.

I acutally came up a little short on my volume due to hop loss. At a lb in the kettle i'd definately have to compensate with more wort

18-20 oz of 6 different hops in our 10 ABV, 7 gal house IPA. Just finished dry hopping a batch last night. We dry hop 1 oz of 3 different hops every other day times 3-5...

brewed 3.5 gal of IIPA with 1 lb of whole leaf centennial (10.5% A.A.) with 6 in dry hop, unfortunately I overshot the alcohol by 1.5% (total 9.5%ABV) so it came out more balanced then I would have liked.
