With adding 2 oz of Galena @ 60min and doing Willamette @ 10 mins. I calculate a IBU of 73.5.
Dextrine Malt is the same as Carapils, from my understanding. I've used this with extract and it isn't difficult to work with at all. It can add body and head retention. 1/2 pound is probably fine. You don't need to do anything else.
I would shoot for 40-45 IBUs max. 73.5 is a very bitter IPA. Try one oz of Galena.
