    Grain bill is almost identical to my West Coast IPA, only real difference is the hops. Type, and amount (10oz).

    Very similar to my APA recipe. I usually go around 35 IBU's, but that's purely preference. On some batches, I have tossed in a bit of Lemondrop or Citra in the dry hop for more citrus aroma, if you're looking for that sort of thing. I'm sure you'll enjoy your batch.

    I think that’s just utilization through BF. I feel like it will
    Probably come out closer to 35-37 when I get the actual AA percentages from the packs of pellets. Thank you for the tip!
