I recently split a bulk purchase with my BIL, we bought a bag of pale malt 2 row. I also recently purchased beersmith so I could start putting together my own recipes using our future (hopefully often) bulk purchases. I figured I would see what it would take to get a black IPA using what I have. I was wondering what your thoughts on this recipe were.

11 lbs 8.0 oz Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 83.6 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 2 3.6 %
6.0 oz Carafa III (525.0 SRM) Grain 3 2.7 %
6.0 oz Chocolate Malt (450.0 SRM) Grain 4 2.7 %


Mash In Add 15.80 qt of water at 168.3 F 152.0 F 75 min
Mash Out Add 10.20 qt of water at 198.5 F 168.0 F 10 min

Sparge Step: Fly sparge with 2.24 gal water at 168.0 F


1.00 oz Chinook[13.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min
1.00 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 15.0 min
1.00 oz Centennial [10.00 %] - Boil 10.0 min
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min
1.00 oz Centennial [10.00 %] - Boil 0.0 min
1 lbs Corn Sugar (Dextrose)
1.0 pkg American Ale II Wyeast1272
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Dry Hop 1 week

Sounds good to me. Personally I like my BIPAs to have that little bit of body so I don't add corn sugar to mine, I just mash at like 150 and it attenuates plenty for me.
