BeerAlchemy says it should end around 42 IBUs (Tinseth),  ABV of 5.2%, and ~ 7 SRM (Morey).

If it's a 60 minute boil add another ounce of hops at the beginning. I think 5oz. is a good place to start for an APA. Take good notes. Brew another batch with the same 5 oz. spread out a little more. Like .5oz at 20, 15,10,5.

I've been using 90 min boils for all grain batches (3 batches so far).
