I want to do an IIPA to help use up some aging hops. (Please don’t suggest I buy Magnum, CTZ, etc. for bittering. Not going to happen.)

I have on hand El Dorado, Citra, Simcoe, which I would usually use for late additions. But this is an IIPA, and I want a conventional 2-3 oz bittering. They are all about 14% AA.

I’ve got more Citra than the others, and I’m usually careful about limiting Citra for late/whirlpool/dry hop as it can dominate, so I’m leaning towards using the Citra for boil (90 minutes)

Opinions?

IMO Citra is the least evil of those choices to use for the boil based on the oil contents.
