Kinda just throwing in what I have on hand at home.

6lb Extra Light DME
2lb Light DME
2lb Crystal 40
1oz Chinook 60 min
1oz Chinook 45 min
1oz Cascade 30 min
1oz Cascade 15 min
.5 oz Saaz 5 min
.5 oz Tettnanger 5 min
White Labs WLP007 Dry English Ale Yeast

Take into account I can only do a three gallon boil due to electric range and space.
I've been taking up alot of fridge space and SWMBO is getting irritated.
I need to get this stuff turned into beer before she tosses it all out.
Does this look feasable at all? Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated!

Cheers to a fellow scoffer of current agricultural & economic conditions :mug:

I plugged your numbers into my program & the returns were in the parameters of an American IPA, ABV:7%, IBU:54.

Check out this chart:http://www.brewsupplies.com/hop_characteristics.htm

Using this logic, I would gear your hop additions towards the 60, 20, 7 min points. Other than that, it looks solid!

Yeah I reposted on the beginners board and came up with this.

8lbs ME
1lb crystal
1oz Chinook @ 60
.5oz Cascade @ 30
.5oz Cascade @ 5
Dry Hop 1oz Chinook

Seems more reasonable
