Congrats! Fabulous man. My version of the Citra bomb is drinking really well and is becoming a local fan favorite. I love me some Citra hop.

I'm pretty new at this and just finished my first IPA. Is there no sugar to add to this recipe?

Sugar for what? Are you talking about priming sugar for naturally carbonating i the bottle? I don't think you really need to add sugar to the boil, but if you're just trying to boost the ABV you can. Sugar addition can be made during the boil, or even added later during fermentation. For example, DFA 120 min IPA is made by serially adding sugar (a little bit each day) throughout a long drawnout fermentation process. Lots of options. Hope this explanation helps.

I meant during the boil. My last IPA had me add a pound of sugar and when I didn't see that in this recipe, I thought it was left out. Your answer was spot on. Thanks!

I didn't see what yeast you used in the recipe. Could you let me know?

I plan on doing this sometime this week or early next week. I enter everything into BeerSmith and I'm coming up with 1.049 OG. Any reason for the 8 point difference? If I enter in 1 pound of extra light DME it brings me up to 1.058.

LME has between 34 and 38 ppppg so a 5 gallon batch with 6.6 pounds should be around 45 to 50.

Citra Bomb 2.0 is underway. Only difference this time is whole cone hops and added 4 oz Caramel 40. I'll let you all know how this one fares.

Just brewed this right now. Didn't cool the wort enough (right about 78) so I need to wait a little bit before pitching.

What temp did you ferment at? WLP001 range is 68-73 but I may ferment at 65 or even a little lower to get a cleaner IPA.
