Guessing 66-67 mash temp?

I prefer my Ipas, pa’s fairly dry. But with no crystal I think that’s a good mix. Bit of extra bitterness will have lay well with the extra body. Your over the 1:1 IBU/GU factor however I think the body will help. 

I think that you’ll find the right kind of mixture between the bitterness and the fruity pine of that hop combo. 

Looks good mate. 

Id personally double that dry hop, ok up to 150g as a west coast should be prominent.

What about a five minute and whirlpool addition?

Don't West Coast IPAs usually have at least some crystal? The range seems to be 2-6%, of light to medium crystal. 

Cheers,

Christina.
