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.

2-row and a little c-40 for color, about 9ish SRM. Adjust up or down for higher or lower OG. That's it.

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.
