Was planning to do an IPA this morning.
However my recipe calls for Eldorado, I've a large selection of hops but guess what, no Eldorado.
Suggestions please for alternative.
Thanks

What is in your selection and what else is in the recipe.

Recipe uses Warrior, Chinook citra and mosaic plus missing Eldorado.
Have in varying amounts: fuggles, EKG simcoe, saaz, first gold, mandarina, perle, challenger, celeia, bobek, cascade and hersbrucker.

I would stick extra citra in its place.

look at the site phildo 79 has put a link to excellent info. Me personal i would from what you have got put 50% extra Citra and 50% extra cascade but who knows?
Just realised you have Simcoe that is a sub that is listed on the site maybe use that 100%

However the 4 previous sources I looked at said there was no substitute for El Dorado. The majority would seem to suggest that it is rather unique.

It's a lovely hop though. I have a keg of single hop IPA ATM. It has a really velvet mouthfeel with an almost vanilla ice cream taste to it.
