I liked this so much that I'm boiling my second batch now. Using raw hops vs pellets this time. Also going to keg this batch (bottled last time).

I am going to brew this next week. I am an extract brewer. The centennials I bought
Are 11.6 and the cascades are 8.0. When I pit in beer smih I am way over on IBU's. I put 3lbs boil 3lbs late addition with 2.5 gallon fermenter top off. Can anyone give some advice?

I decided to mess with the hopping on this and double the amounts. Turns out I had 1 oz of centennial, 0.5 oz of cascade and 0.5 oz of citra. So I am brewing a BierMuncher inspired 50 IBU IPA/Pale Ale experiment at the moment!

Used US-05 and went from 1.048-1.008 in 6 days. 05 is such a beast. Secondary for 3 days and to the bottle!

Solid brew day. Efficiency was good. Put more than 11 gallons in two fermenters and nailed the gravity.

Either adjust the amounts of hops during the first half hour of the boil down until you get the right IBU, or try boiling all of your extract for the full hour. One of these two solutions should get you to the right bitterness. I would do the first.
