Brew a pale ale or IPA recipe and reduce the 60 min bittering charge. Load up the hops late and dryhop for flavor and aroma.
I find a lot of times when people say "I don't like IPAs" it's due to the bittering charge and even more often because of some hop presence they just don't enjoy like a strong pine or for me grapefruit flavor.
Edit: Responded to an earlier post before seeing your later post regarding the C hops pale ale. Glad you took my advice before I even posted! hahaha
I think you may want a little more bittering in that beer to be honest. That's about 15 IBU bittering and only about 20 total including your late addition. I bitter my IPAs to about 28-30 IBU. I would try to get your bittering charge(60 min) up closer to 20 IBU if it were me...it's your beer though...or your wife's.
