Notes

Ferment for 12 days at 50 F
Dry hop after 7 days of fermentation has passed for 5 days (until end of primary fermentation)
transfer to secondary and purge with CO2 if fermentation has stopped.
Diacetyl rest for 4 days
Lager for 30 days in secondary at 34 F
Keg or bottle and enjoy

Citra was the best value bittering hop I could find, but the target IBU should be 37.5 regardless of the bittering hop used.
Bittering hops have little to no effect on the aroma if added at 60 minutes.
I recommend noble hops for aroma and dry hopping (Saaz, Hallertau, Tettanger, Spalt) but you could use American hybrid versions as well (Mt. Hood, Crystal, Liberty, Ultra)
