Messed around with Brewsmith, and all the ingredients make it into an imperial IPA.

I would add another addition somewhere in the 5min-flameout area to give it some aroma. I'm drinking a buddies IPA right now that has incredible flavor, but is lacking nose which is somewhat disappointing. Just a thought, but a think an aroma addition would speak volumes for your deliciously hoppy brew. Cheers!

I would bump up the IBU's to around 70-80 to balance it out a bit (maybe one more 1/4 oz of columbus?). I think you also do need an aroma hop at flameout. The other oz of cascade should take care of that very nicely.
I'm also not too sure of how the Mt Hood hops work with the other two. I think it's more of a German styled lager hop. You might want to consider usinging it earlier in the boil strictly for bittering, and the use some of the Columbus and mostly Cascade for flavor and aroma.

I added an oz of cascade at the end.
