When I planned my last batch (my 4th, so I'm pretty inexperienced) using Beersmith for a single hop IPA, I realised that the IBU I got from the recipe was way to low. So I adjusted the recipe and aimed for about 40IBUs.

I ended up with the following numbers:

  1. 7g Simcoe (12.9%) 60min
  2. 30g Simcoe (12.9%) 30min
  3. 38g Simcoe (12.9%) 5min

Quite some hops, but I didn't realize this at that moment.

After the boil I saw that I was using the wrong profile in Beersmith and I so ended up with around 62IBUs for my 20 liter-ish batch. OG is 1.049 so it's on the lighter side and has therefore a IBU/SG ratio of 1.38.

The batch is currently sitting in the fermenter and after reading this threadthread I wonder what to do next. My options are:

  1. Dump it. Learn from it. Have a homebrew.
  2. Let it ferment, dryhop & bottle it and hope that time will make things better

Unfortunately I don't have enough storage to make a similar brew and blend it with it.

So, judging by the numbers, if that is possible, what would you do?

Edit: 3 days into fermentation

I tried some of the beer today and I think it will turn out quite drinkable. The wort was very sweet and bitter, but now as there's some alcohol developing I like it more.

So the plan is to dryhop it next week (either with Simcoe, Citra or Galaxy)

Edit: 5 weeks after brewday

I dryhopped the beer with 50g Citra and it turned out quite well. It's on the bitter side, but it's not something that you should dump :)
