    I'd be surprised if this didn't turn out pretty good.

    I appreciate it. I’m still undecided about the extra alcohol boost. Might remove the dextrose. Also, considering using a different hop for secondary fermentation. Just getting back to brewing. Thanks!!!

    The sugar is sort of working against the other non-base malts. They're all adding sweetness and/or mouthfeel, while the sugar is cutting the malt flavours and increasing the ABV. So if you're second guessing yourself on the ABV I'd drop the corn sugar.

    Falconer's is already a blend. Not saying you shouldn't add something else, just that it's supposed to give you the West Coast IPA taste in one product, so you don't have to blend hops together. I haven't used it so don't really have an opinion on how well it hits that target.

    if you were doing a dry hop you could change it up by adding something a bit fruitier, say a Mosaic and Citra mix. But that's getting away from that West Coast vibe. If you want to stay true to that just add some more Falconer's for the dry hop.

    What's the target?
    It'll make a nice big beer, but not a West Coast IPA and not a New England either.
    You're the cook, so have fun and brew on!
    Cheers
