If all you want is color, Sinamar would be easier. You can just add a bit at a time til yo get the color you want.

I'm not gonna mention the Wyeast # because I don't want this to turn into another Rush discussion but are WLP001 and Wyeast California lager the same yeast? I brewed the other day with WLP001 and right now things look very very similar in terms of how the yeast is acting. Given that White Labs call theirs a California Ale and not a lager, I was thinking I'd see more aggressive fermentation and more krausen but right now, not much.
Anyway, just wondering if there is any appreciable difference between the two.
If you brew American IPA, what yeast do you use?
I was looking through the generic recipes in Stephen Snyder's The Brewmaster's Bible (copyright 1997). For India Pale Ales he recommended Wyeast's 2565 or 1007. Wyeast lists these as Kölsch and German Ale respectively.
I've been using Safale 05, American Ale. Am I using the wrong yeast?
