    When selecting "fresh hops" in the recipe and entering the weight of fresh green hops the IBU calculated does not take this into account in its calculation as it must use the IBU based on the dry hop rate. As I am using fresh green hops for the first time it would have been helpful if the calculations could be based on the fresh green hop weights.

    Yes, I see what you mean. I think even if it did take the fresh hops into consideration that the AAUs would be just a guess at best but it's important to have that portion as accurate as we can make it. I'll put this up for fixing, thank you!
