Adventures in Homebrewing-The Recipe!

I have been homebrewing for about 3 years now.  I started as an extract brewer and about a year ago, went to All-Grain brewing.  From here on out, I plan on documenting my "Adventures in Homebrewing" on this site.  This coming weekend, I plan on brewing a Belgian IPA.  I did a Belgian IPA last year, and it turned out pretty good, though a bit under carbed.  This is a different recipe, so I will call this one Belgian IPA #2.  If it comes out good, then I can give it a better name.  If it doesn't turn out good then it will become a one and done, and not get a fancy name.  Here's the recipe:
