One batch down

Last night I brewed my first batch of beer. I started brewing about 8PM and finished off at 2AM. I only had a few minor mishaps like a small boil over, doing the mash at too high of a temperature, and forgetting to start the yeast and hence having to rush it. That said, I've got a pretty big IPA going and it's starting to ferment slowly.

Original gravity: 1.080
Bittering hops: 1oz Chinook, 1oz Centennial
Finishing hops: 1os Willamette

I'm planning on dry hopping with Columbus.
