Sad, isn't it?
The 6.6 lbs of DME will put you on the low end of the style. If you want a bigger IPA, you'll need a couple more pounds of extract.
Use one ounce of the Chinook to bitter.
Get some adjunct grains to steep. Try some crystal/caramel malt...like 20-40L. Steeping grains will make an extract beer at least twice as good. A little tiny bit of Black Patent (like a ounce) would be fun for a nice reddish color.
As far as finishing hops, go nuts. Use any and all of whatever you want in the last 15 minutes depending how much flavor/aroma you want. I'd rather use some Centennial or Cascade because I like American IPAs, but anything will do. The Tettnanger would be fairly out of style. I'd use the Northern and Goldings.
Should be a pretty good IPA...
