IPA Recipe Critique

I’m just starting to play around with developing my own recipes. This is basically the NB DeadRinger recipe but I changed up the hops/schedule. I’m looking to get a little more “bite” from the original but still want to maintain some of those nice Centennial flavors/aromas. Thoughts or suggestions appreciated:
O.G. 1.062
IBU 73

11.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 91.7 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 2 8.3 %
0.50 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 3 22.6 IBUs
1.00 oz Centennial [9.20 %] - Boil 20.0 min Hop 4 19.4 IBUs
0.50 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 20.0 min Hop 5 13.7 IBUs
2.00 oz Centennial [9.20 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 8 12.8 IBUs
0.50 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 9 4.5 IBUs
1.00 oz Centennial [9.20 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days Hop 11 0.0 IBUs
0.25 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days Hop 12 0.0 IBUs

Looks decent enough. For most IPAs I like a 60, 15, 10, 5, 0 hop schedule but that is just my preference and that may alter your recipe more than you are wishing.

I’ll probably end up there. I’ve brewed the DeadRinger a few times and I know what it tastes like. I’m using this also as a taste experiment to see how much of a flavor change the Chinooks will give, so I did not want to change too much to start. If I like the direction it is heading then I’ll probably tweak it and increase the hop schedule.
hanks for your input.

Looks good! Have you priced out what it would cost for all the ingredients from NB? I’d be interested in brewing your recipe.

About $21, 2-Row I purchased in 50# sack and the hops were purchased in one pound bags. All from NB.
