I am not completely sure, but my go-to (Hop testing) APA has been referred to as similar to a lower gravity NE-IPA, so it may help out. I use 100% extract in it, because it is designed for testing out hop varieties.
30 minute boil.
1 3.3lb can of Rye LME
3lb of Pilsner light DME
1oz of Columbus (CTZ) at 30 minutes
3-4 oz hops at flameout
3oz dry hop
It usually ends up about 5-5.5 percent (depending on boil-off). I ferment with the Barbarian Strain from Imperial Yeast.
If I were to try and make this more of an NE-IPA, I would up the DME by 2-3 pounds, and maybe use Wheat LME rather than the Rye LME. If I used wheat LME, I would probably steep about 1/2lb of medium crystal (40-60L)
