Pretty simple topic, if you needed to make your favorite IPA right now what is your go to, house IPA grainbill. Just curious as to what everyone likes to do.

12lbs 2-row (domestic)
2lbs Munich 10L
0.5lb Caramel 20L

Mash around 149-150. This grainbill was stolen from a BYO article a while back and has never let me down. I really like the Munich in there.
Beer is the answer....but I can't remember the question.

2-row and a little c-40 for color, about 9ish SRM. Adjust up or down for higher or lower OG. That's it.
Who is this Rorschach guy? And why did he paint so many pictures of my parents fighting?

13lb 2-row
8oz Cara-Pils
8oz C-60

The grain bill was easy...the hop schedule i wouldn't be able to say because I haven't used the same one twice yet!

It does seem that most of us are keeping the grain bill rather simple though.

I've made a great red IPA with 10 lbs 2 row, 3 lbs Briess 80, and 2 lbs Munich. It has a nice red color and caramel flavor that goes perfect with my hop choices. I'm experimenting with a "dark" IPA as well just changing out the specialty malts with chocolate.
