Okay, probably should have done this earlier but I didn't so here it goes.

I'm very new to recipe making its the hop selection and schedule that gets me indecisive.

I'm currently mashing an American IPA

11 lbs 2-row
1/2 lb Carapils
1 lb Munich
1/2lb Crystal 40L
Mash at 150F

trying to come up with a hop schedule. I have the following hops available to use up:
Cascade
Centennial
Nelson Sauvin
Cluster.
Goldings
Williamette


Was initially thinking a Centennial or Nelson for bittering then Cascade for flavoring and aroma. Any advice on pairings or amounts? More interested in Target IBU's for each addition rather than amount so I can adjust for hop age.

Cluster at 60, centennial at 15, nelson at 10, cascade at 5 or zero (or both).

Well then I'd say centennial or cascade at 60 and I still like the idea of centennial/cascade/nelson in the last fifteen minutes. Could also dry hop with all three if you wanted.

Thanks for all the help. Will definitely try yours soon. I have an entire lb of williamette I haven't even touched.

Really gotta start reading the hops book for guidance. So many options!

Ended up with
1.25 Centennial @60min
1.0 Cascade - 15
1.0 Centennial - 15
.4 Nelson - 15
1oz cascade - 5
1 oz nelson - 5
1oz cascade - 0
1 oz nelson - 0

Looks good. Let us know how it turns out. I've never paired nelson and cascade. Dry hopping?

Yeah prob 1 oz each fordry hopping.

I haven't paired them before either. Nearly 90% of my batches are single hop. So I'be only done an all Nelson blonde ale. Was well received.
