Hey guys,

I am new to brewing. I have brewed one IPA before from a recipe pack but this time I wanted to do a smash because I want to learn the flavors of the hops and malts that go in it. As this is a experiment I wanted to do a small batch so if it does not turn out good I wont be too sad about disposing it!
I do like my juicy IPA so I wanted to trial using Mosaic ( i had used cascade, centennial and chinook in the previous brew) for this one as it has some juicy goodness. (maybe next time i will use citra, amarillo and galaxy). So i want to make this is a hop forward IPA without it being too bitter.
So here is the recipes i was thinking of. I used Brewers friend to create the recipe. Please let me know which one should i use to have hop forward beer with citrusy flavors and nose. Also what should i change?

With my IPAs and SMaSHs I usually do...

@ 60 mins
@ 30 or 20 or 15 mins
Drop the temp to around 160F, and do a 20 - 30 min whirlpool
5 day dryhop

if you are looking for a big hop flavor and aroma, I would probably do my second addition at 15mins.
