So, brew day was a mess... i brewed my first Juicy IPA. I missed my OG, had to add 1lb of DME, efficiency was off, and I missed my only planned whirlpool hop addition at 180d ( got it in at 130d). Below is a snapshot image of what it turned out as.

Its now at FG and I'm about to dry hop. the original plan was 2oz each of amarillo and el dorado. Any suggestions on amounts? since this beer has "technically" 0 ibus, i want to add enough hops, but being such low abv I don't wanna overwhelm it.

Thanks in advance.

A typical neipa ppl are doing 2oz per gallon of dryhop for say a 7% ABC beer, personally I'm I'm the 1.25 oz per gallon range. Maybe throw an extra ounce of each in? Being a lower abv you dont want to overdo it but I think 6oz in a 5 gallon batch would be ok even at that abv.
