DME dissolves in cold water easier than hot. It clumps up and is a PITA but not a huge deal. Id add it with 5-10 min left to get the clumps out and mixed well. Other than that watch out for the extra boil over. Hop schedule looks good to me let me know how it turns out.

Good idea. I will definitely do this. So late in the boil, it shouldn't have too much of an impact on the bitterness. Maybe knock it down to 110 IBUs or so.

Any suggestion on what yeast to use? With an O.G. of 1.087, I'm worried that the Wyeast American Ale yeast (what I would normally use for an IPA) might not be up for the challenge.
