Pineapple IPA

Never tried anything like this, but I always thought pineapple or grapefruit would be really good in a mellow IPA. So here goes. I'm going to quarter the pineapple and add it to primary, or at least that's my plan.
11 lbs gw 2row
2 lbs gw Vienna
1 lbs gw Munich wheat

1 oz Ctz @60
1 oz chinook @20
1 oz cascade @0

1 lbs GW crystal 60
.5 GW chocolate
.5 breis carapills
.5 GW flaked oats
.31 black patent

1 oz cascade @60
1 oz cascade @30

Extra: in primary
1 lbs toasted coconut flakes in (toasted @ 400 for enough time to make the kids say, "is mommy making muffins?")
1 oz coconut extract

Safale 04 yeast
