I would say that dry hopping would be mandatory. That might get you close.Warthaug wrote:Dryhopping will add some flavour & lots of aroma. You won't get the bitterness though.
I think brewhouse makes an IPA kit - that's probably your best bet (you could still dry-hop it)
Once i started using a thermometer and kept the temperature in check it improved a lot . biggest issue is the stove . the burner is small and consentrates the heat in a very small area ... especially if the pot you use is thin ... ends up scortching your wort and gives you some off flavours .
