Looks good but the IBU's are too high for a mild you need to take it down to 20- 22

Thanks any recommendations for a suitable hop for a mild, any amounts, as it looks with what is available for a traditional British Hop that getting the IBUs down I would be adding just a dusting and not much more.

Bramling Cross is a favourite of mine in milds, both for bitterness and aroma.

The fuggles you've got is perfect. Very traditional. However your brewing software seems have made some sort of cock up. 7g of your fuggles @45 and 10 are fine. Brewmate calculates this at 22.6 IBU but your software is saying 30.1 IBU.

The figures are punted out of Brewers Friend as I can get to that from this laptop at work, I'll stick it into BeerSmith later and see what I get out.
