    Is that ratio about average when bulking or should I cut the calories back?

    American education at it's finest! :)

    155lbs * 8% = 12.4lbs of fat
    180lbs * 13% = 23.4lbs of fat

    Still following?

    23.4lbs - 12.4lbs = 11lbs of fat

    Therefore, you have gained 11lbs of fat.

    11lbs of fat is correct (assuming bodyfat % was taken accurately), but that doesn't mean the remaining 14lbs was lean muscle - you gained water too.

    Its an electronic scale, so in absolute terms it may be off but the relative increase is correct.

    Those scales fluctuate wildly based on how hydrated you are... even caliper readings done by a retarded monkey are more accurate.
