That link you sent is the first brew. I listened to the 11/22/10 rebrew and they said that the two side by side were identical. They all said this. They said they wanted to take it to sone beer fest and let the audience decide. Download it and listen to it, it's really interesting how they figured it out.
As for the IBU who knows what software that person had who entered it in the database.
Mitch Steel told them to keep it simple, and again AB was a SMaSH experiment to begin with.
Listen for yourselves AB 11/22/10 rebrew
Even if it's not 1,000,000% cloned, they said you'd never be able to tell the two apart, and the grain bill is way different than what's posted here.

Ok i am going to throw in my 2 cents here. A few weeks ago i attempted to brew the arrogant bastard. It came out great but there was something a little off.

5lbs golden DME
2lbs golden DME (15min)
1lbs Special B (steeped for 60min @150)
1oz Chinook (60min)
1oz Chinook (45min)
1oz Chinook (5min)

Used Notty and tried to ferment around 65.
The IBU's were a little on the high end so i am going to change my hop times to 60,30,5. I am also going to change the DME addition amount to 6lbs at first boil and then 1lb 15min from the end. Also am going to give my Pacman harvest a try instead of Notty.

I just toured the stone brewery yesterday and I was able to get someone to admit that it is a single hop variety... How close is this recipe? I intend to brew it when I get home to Fort Worth

Not a dead nuts perfect clone, but pretty close, and is a good easy IPA to throw together in a hurry. No dry hop cuts down on time too. I say go for it.

So what is the yeast of choice for this clone?
Also, what is the mash temp? 150F?

While at stone brewery they told me they have a proprietary yeast made by white labs (which is just down the street from the brewery) I would use WLP001 as its a California ale yeast and probably closer than the others

How would Maris Otter be as the base malt vs. pale 2-row? Wouldn't the M.O. produce a maltier beer?

Brewing a modified version of this as I type. I'm lowering the OG and FG for my tastes. I feel like 1.020 is high, but maybe the real beer does finish high. In any case, I'm using the original posts specialty grains along with 12.5 lbs Briess 2-row. My hops are looking like this.

2 oz Columbus @ 60
1 oz Chinook @ 10
1 oz Chinook @ 5
2 oz Chinook @ FO
