Fremont Brewing in Seattle has a great IPA that's 2-row, munich and honey malt. It is a little sweet, but not overly so. I've tried coming up with something something similar and my grain bill looks a lot like gymrat's. Interesting how that's worked out in this thread.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

What it really comes down to is how much you like honey malt, or any other specialty grain. Put whatever specialty grain in whatever beer you think you'd like it in. Although I do agree with the idea of starting out with a small percentage the first go round.

My house IPA has 2% Honey malt. It adds a little depth of flavor w/o being sweet, and a little color too. For me it is like Naked Oats. I like them in small quantity.
