IPA using fresh ginger root

I've done a few home brews kits and want to try putting something together myself....well, and the help of all of you. I was thinking about doing something like a blonde IPA using fresh ginger root. I've looked online but can only really find ginger beer. I'm very new at home brewing so I'm really just taking a stab in the dark (if you will) with all of this so the more information, the better.

Thanks in advance!

Re: IPA using fresh ginger root

My feeling on spices is that they're best if they are just barely at the limit of detection-but with an IPA you might want to go a little bigger. I've used ginger a few times. I'd suggest that you add it asa"dry hop"-i do this by peeling it and blanching (surface sterilise) in boiling water. 2-4 oz should do.
