I haven't decided yet. I actually like a hop bursted IPA. I love hop flavor but I detest the bitter bite a lot of IPAs have. I may or may not FWH with a half an ounce of something.

Looks tasty. I might suggest a touch of warrior at 60 minutes so it doesn't come across too sweet. Both of those hops have some fruity/citrusy characteristics that you may want to balance out with some bittering additions. However they're two of my favorites.

Also, IMO might want to dry hop so you get the full effect of both hops.

+1 - especially if you can't drink it quickly - hopbursting is great, but it seems to be best if you are drinking the IPA extremely young.  After a few weeks the sweetness creeps in.

I'd dryhop 1.5-2.0oz of each to really maximize the aroma.

Mine as well, although I just had a kinda strange experience with them.  I added Amarillo and Simcoe dry hops to a keg and got a really strange floral, almost rose-like aroma from them.  Not the citrus/dank qualities I was expecting.  Then I read Stan's article in the latest Zymurgy about the interaction between yeast and hops, and the increase in gerianol that can be caused by the effect of yeast on hops.  I recalled that the beer was fairly cloudy when I dry hopped.  I'm going to try experimenting with using a secondary to drop out more yeast the next time I dry hop.  Should be interesting.

It's not an IPA without dry hops. I'd go with about 2-3 ounces of each.

I'm also a big fan of hop stands. I'd move each addition 5 minutes closer to flameout then do a hot hop stand. I like 60-90 minutes for my IPAs, but 30 minutes is a good start if you don't want to overshoot your bitterness.

I recently did a 50/50 split for additions on a all simcoe / Amarillo and I have nothing but great things to say about it. I did use 1.5 simcoe for the 60min addition it was enought for some bitter backbone but it blends so nicely in this mix.
