If you want a sweeter IPA try doing an English IPA keep everything the same and just use an english yeast like WLP023 (burton ale) or WLP002 (english ale) both those will leave some more sweetness than WLP001.
Cheers!

...and 1# of Honey malt is waaaaay tooooooo muuuuuuch! 4-6 oz. is plenty; I recently did a 5 gl batch of Blonde Ale w/ 2 oz & could still taste it.

I changed it to 6oz of honey malt. I started reading that a little goes a long way
