    I just want a little feedback on this recipe because I'm afraid to brew it in case something goes wrong

    I don't see anything particularly wrong with the recipe, depending on what you intended. This will not have a lot of hop character as written - the 14 gram additions of hops at 30 minutes will be mostly bitterness, the 14 grams at 15 minutes will provide some hop flavor but not a lot. If you want a hop-forward beer, add some more hops at 0 minutes (whirlpool) or dry hop. To "smooth" the bitterness consider a first-wort addition. As written, brewed using my processes, you'd come up with something closer to an ESB with this recipe. Of course, American IPAs are much more hop-forward than British versions....

    Again, how well a recipe performs depends on how you brew it and what you intended. This will be balanced toward hops but not overly hoppy. Let us know how it turns out!

    I agree with Nosybear ,to me this is really a pale ale not an IPA but just say this looking at the the title, it will be a good easy tasting pale ale though, I like these from time to time especially in the summer

    Thanks for the feedback, will add some hops for dry hopping instead of whirlpool. Thank you again.

    Just a personal preference, I prefer whirlpool hopping over dry hopping - the bit of cooking of the hops by the hot wort gives them a different character. Think of the difference between raw broccoli and lightly steamed broccoli. But I do sometimes dry hop when I want a strong hop nose, which tricks the palate into thinking there are more hops in the beer than there are.
