Need help with my first IPA

Recommended Posts

I've been brewing for about a year now but been sticking to the basic recipes for the most part. But, now I'm wanting to brew my first IPA. However, not really sure how to go about it with what I have in stock, so I'm looking for a little help from the borg :) Here's everything I've got right now, and I have several cans of all of it (all are the old cans pre-buyout)...

Grand Bohemian pilsner
Sticky wicket stout
Pilothouse pilsner
High country canadian draft
Octoberfest vienna lager
Whispering wheat weizenbier
Witty monk wittbier
Wesr coast pale ale
Cowboy golden lager

A briess sparkling amber 3.3lb can
3lbs pilsner dme
2lbs traditional dark dme
Bunch of boosters lol

And hops wise i have 2-4 ounces each of
Saaz (czech)
Mittlefrue
Columbus

I dont really wanna buy anything else, but would be willing to spring for so more hops if i needed to.

Thanks in advance for any help!!!

I would do similar to what the Duck recommends, but I'd use your amber instead of your dark if it were me... You could use the pilsner as well, or some combination of the two. Depends on what color you want.
