I'll name it Driveway IPA, because that is where it ended up.

Why would someone put Imperial Gallons of water with lbs of grain and oz of hops?  That is retarded.

Because there is no difference between an ounce by weight here and an ounce by weight in the states.  Same goes for a pound.  If it were fluid ounces, then there would be a difference.

I would be nice if everything was metric, but I don't see that happening too soon.

To me, the units that go with metric Gallons are kilograms and grams, not pounds and ozs.

IPA is one of the relatively few styles with an extremely high fault tolerance. You have alot of room for error and still end up with a good beer. It's a shame to hear it was dumped
