I've been using that hopping method (I do FWH instead of 60 and I whirlpool a little lower temp) and it has worked great. Good luck with this monster

Got any more hops?

When I do my biggest IPAs, I skip bittering all together. I pick up some IBUs from a late boil addition, and the rest from a flameout whirlpool

the FG of 1.020 might be a little sweet...personally I'd increase the sugar and get it down to at least 1.012 or even lower.

Increasing the sugar actually raised the FG in brewersfriend

If you are going big, you can keep going big. The more hops the better, if you ask me.

This is how I pretty much do all my hoppy beers now... enough bittering to hit ~40-60% of the IBUs I want (you'll get a lot from the whirlpool... I usually 'bitter' around 20 minutes though) and then add as much as I can in the whirlpool and dry hop. WIth my dry hop, I will usually do a third or half 4 or 5 days in and then keg hop the rest (3-4 days at room temp and then move to the kegerator).

In my experience with Galaxy, I think it absolutely shines as a dry hop. When I use it, I either split it 10:90 or just go all in on the dry hop.

I'm guessing the calculation is just off on brewersfriend. Putting the recipe into Beersmith, I get 1.011. I've never used SDSY, but that is roughly what I'd expect with Chico.
