Thanks for the update!

I have been wanting to clone an IPA because mine don't seem to turn out the way I like them. Been thinking about doing Lagunitas IPA but maybe I will try this instead. What yeast did you use? I am not seeing it for some reason.

Can you also expand on the dry hop process? Did you really dry hop for 3 days, rack then dry hop again? Also, I don't see the dry hops listed?

Sorry i forget when i export beersmith that way it leaves out some things.  I really like the 1028 along with the 1098 yeast this is 1028. Yest you really do a short contact time with the dry hops. Brynildson believes in this i have read and he is making me a believer:) Primary lasted quite a while 14 days and it took a while for the yeast to drop. I did do the first dry hop in the primary around the 14 day and let it sit for 3 days then racked to secondary and dry hopped again with the same amount as the first. I then crashed it for 24 hrs and kegged and kept it at 32 for 7 days while carbonating. I did use 100% RO and the salt and PH adjustments as mentioned in the previous post.
What i would do differently next time is Mash at 148F and attempt to get it a bit lower in FG to 1.012 along with pushing the Sulfate up to 250ppm. At 8 weeks out it is really tasty i was rushing it at 5 weeks and it was just a bit to "harsh"/astringent on the finish now it is $. Would love your feedback.

Thanks for the specifics on your process. Looks good to me though I am surprised that it would take so long to become tasty.

Maybe I could get away with using S04 as a yeast sub? I use all of those hops regularly except warrior. I think I might give this a shot next time I brew an IPA. I have never done a clone so it could be a good learning experience.
