Tony Babinec computes an IBU to HBU conversion factor of 1/3.8 to
1/4.5 (utilization 25% to 30%), and suggests using the 1/3.8 factor
when reading AHA guidelines, etc. I assume this is in a 5 gallon

Well, since you're approximating anyway, how about using a simple
factor of 1/4, instead. Lots easier to do in your head than 1/3.8.
