Wall under a Steel I Beam

I'm finishing my basement and want to construct a wall underneath a steel I beam. What's the best way to attach it to the beam? I'm thinking about building a Murphy bed on the other side so there might be some load pulling down on the wall.

Wall

Drill holes and bolt the top plate to the bottom side of the I-beam.

Thanks. After a little more research that seeems like the likely choice. I guess there is a high velocity ram set I could use but I'm not sure I want to try shooting nails into steel nor invest in one.
