Totally lost with dosing...

Can somebody please simplify dosing in a planted tank for me? I purchased the PPS-Pro Fert Pack and am totally lost on how much of each type I am supposed to be dosing. I have a newly, moderately planted 65 gallon tank with a 20 gallon sump. I am using forced CO2 with high lighting. I started researching until I got to different methods (EI vs PPS), ways to dose (Dry vs mixed solution), ways to measure, etc. Now I am totally lost. Reef dosing is so much simpler lol.
