    The recipe builder already tells you how many IBU's a particular addtion will contribute, but I would like to enter the desired IBU and have it yield how many grams/ounces to yield that. That sure would be a helpful tool in building a beer to specs:)

    cheers,

    i would like this feature with a further specification;

    Make the reverse IBU only work on bittering hops (120 to 60 min additions).
    The reasoning is that many brewers only give you the IBU of the bittering addition of their beer,
    everything else is just bonus.

    In my opinion reverse IBU is useless without this little specification. If you are not to make the reverse ibu calc atleast give some manual mechanic to dial in the wanted IBU without typing in numbers (hint: up-down arrow action or mouse scroll or something, dont make a dropdown menu thats horrible).
