A simple IPA with amarillo/simcoe hops. I love that combo, more than anything else.

95% two-row
5% victory malt
OG of 1.065-1.070

Bitter to 40 IBUs with the 60 minute hops (warrior or magnum or other neutral hops), and then:
1 oz simcoe 20 minutes
1 oz amarillo 15 minutes
1 oz simcoe 10 minutes
1 oz amarillo 5 minutes
.5 oz simcoe 0 minutes
1 oz amarillo 0 minutes
dryhop .5 oz simcoe 1 oz amarillo 5-7 days

This. And maybe some simcoe in the dry-hop as well.

Don't fridge them, freeze them. Under nitrogen, or CO2, if possible. Last much longer.

Pretty much any style I want with that list.

I would probably brew a quick IPA to start then brew an imperial stout to age.

"Lunacy"? Or drinkable? Could be a big difference.

You've got noble hops, great American hops, and more. If you want to mix them go ahead. There may be a very good reason that some of the suggestions have been "done before"- because they are awesome and not a muddled mess.
