fmader:
I have never made a Red IPA before, so I decided to throw together a recipe the other night. I'm trying to make something along the lines of Green Flash Hop Head Red or New Belgium Red Hoptober. After some research, here's what I come up with...Let me know what you think.

Batch = 5.5 gallon
OG = 1.070
IBUs roughly 75
70% efficiency

60 minute mash at 150
Two Row Pale = 9 lb 8 oz (64%)
Munich Malt = 3 lb 5.75 oz (22%)
Flaked Oats = 1 lb (6%)
Caramel/Crystal 120L = 10.67 oz (4%)
Caramel/Crystal 80L = 5.33 oz (2%)
Caramel/Crystal 40L = 5.33 oz (2%)
Chocolate Malt = 1 oz (0%)

60 minute = .75 oz Columbus
45 minute = .75 oz Nugget
10 minute = .25 oz Amarillo
10 minute = .25 oz Simcoe
5 minute = .25 oz Amarillo
5 minute = .25 oz Simcoe
0 minute = .5 oz Amarillo
0 minute = .5 oz Simcoe
Dry Hop = 1 oz Amarillo
Dry Hop = 1 oz Simcoe
***Thinking about upping the dry hopping to 1.5 oz of each Amarillo and Simcoe***

White Labs 051 California Ale V or WYeast 1272 American Ale II

deepsouth:
that looks good to me.  i'd up the dry hops, like you posted.

hoser:
Jamil's West Coast Blaster is a pretty good example of a West Coast Amber/Red IPA.  Just sub out the Cascade and Centennial for Amarillo and Simcoe (My fave hop blend, BTW) and the CTZ for the Horizon and you'll have yourself a fantastic brew!  Just bump up your base grain a little if you want to still have an OG of 1.070 and dry hop like you planned!
Cheers!

I would move your 5 and 10 minute hops to 0 minutes and let them steep while chilling.

topher.bartos:
Looks great.

I might brew one this if you don't mind.
