You might want to increase the hops amount to 2 oz for extra hoppiness...

Add malt extract and 1 ounce hops pellets to 1.5 gallons boiling water. Boil for 30 minutes and add remainder of hops (0.5 ounce). Boil for 10 more minutes.

Place wort in primary fermenter and add water to make 5 gallons. Wait for temperature to reach 70 degrees F and pitch yeast.

After most fermentation activity stops (3 to 4 days), rack to secondary fermenter. Disolve gelatine in one cup boiling water and add to wort. Keep in secondary fermenter one week.

Dissolve 3/4 cup corn sugar in 2 cups boiling water, add to wort and bottle. This beer clears nicely after one week.
