Looks good! I agree with Denny and John with more of a punching bittering hop like chinook or Columbus. But in my opinion, first wort hops don't pack the backbone that I like to bitter an IPA. That being said, i love the flavor that they add. I use them in conjunction with a 60 minute hop. But it's all what you want in an IPA. I use a lot of hops.... 10-12 oz in the kettle usually. Most might say that's overkill.

That's why I use FWH for flavor and consider any bittering I get from them to be secondary.

Yes... In addition to the 10 in the kettle, there are 6ish used as dry hops.

Yeah a brewer buddy thought it was over the top until he tried one of my last ones. He uses less in his IPAs normally, so I guess he was expecting hop extract beer or something. He loved it.

That's pretty much my recipe for 3 gallons of IPA right now. 10ish ounces at flameout/hopstand and 6oz of dry hops. Well, 3 gallons at the end of the boil :)

I brewed this on Sunday, great brew day. Missed OG of 1.064 and hit 1.058, but on only my second AG batch, I'll take it. The big issue I had was forgetting my hot scotchy. I was really looking forward to this, but it was not in my notes or on beersmith, so it was forgotten. I guess I'll just haev to keep brewing until I remember this most important step, ;)
The starter worked well, and had blowoff tube action(no blowoff, just CO2) by the time I woke up on Monday after pitching Sunday night close to 7 pm. The blowoff tube was pretty quiet by the time I woke up Tuesday though, so I hope there is not an issue, but RDWHAHB, right? We will see in a couple weeks.
