    Two weeks ago I finished up a simple APA extract recipe:

    7 lbs extra light DME
    1.5 oz Amarillo @60
    1.0 oz Citra @ 10
    1.0 oz Citra @ flameout

    California Ale (WLP001) yeast

    2.0 oz Citra dry hopped for 14 days
    1.0 oz Amarillo dry hopped for 14 days

    Threw in the dry hops last night and took a sample. Very nice citrus and grapefruit flavors so far.

    Sounds good. Did you make a starter or did you just pitch the yeast from the vial?

    Yeah, I made a 1500 ml starter. Should have learned my lesson last time as the top blew off twice on me. Next time I'm just using a blow off tube instead of an airlock.

    Looks like you already brewed an IPA, 7# of DME and 3 oz. of dry hops...just sayin'

    And 1.5 oz of Amarillo @ 60, that should be a bunch of IBUs

    As far as the bittering charge goes, the OP could be doing a partial boil which would bring theis down to an APA level. But a 6%+ APA with that many dry hops...this thing is pushing on an unbalanced IPA/strong APA.

    As far as the OP's question which we all seem to be ignoring:
    Use the same malt bill.

    As far as the hops, are you doing a partial boil (then topping off with water)? I could help get a schedule together, but need a bit more info.
