Surefire extract recipe

Extract brewers, please share your never-fail pale ale or IPA recipe. Looking for a tried and true recipe you've brewed over and over that won't fail. Cheers!

I never brew the same APA/IPA twice, but they are all pretty much derived from James Spencer's 15 Minute Pale Ale recipe:

You know, I wouldn't mind doing that one, but I have a creeping suspicion that the past 3-4 one gallon 20 minute batches I made were crap in part bc of the short boil. Thoughts?

I've never had an issue with it myself. What makes you think the short boil was the issue? What was wrong with the beers?

If they were all grain and you did the short boil there may be a decent amount of DMS precursor in it... With extract I would think you would be fine.
