So, liking Beef Stew and Chicken Soup doesn’t mean you’ll like the results if you mix ingredients of the 2 recipes. BUT making the beer you want to drink is what this hobby is all about so don’t let me or anyone tell you not to try that.
Part of what makes the Irish red so awesome is that it’s an easy drinker. Jacking up the ABV will change that. So I’d recommend starting with a batch of “megalodon imperial red” from Northern. if you like that, it may be a better base from which to riff on the hop profile.
If you want to get serious about recipe design you should also look at BeerSmith. You can look at the recipes you have, and get a good idea how changes you want to make will impact the final beer. It also lets you track your revisions. I guarantee you won’t get it right after 3 tries, so given your pace change tracking and tasting Notes will be key.
