Just personal preference on what hop characteristics you like. I'm a big fan of Cascade and Amarillo Gold in just about everything American I make.

I'd suggest that you first try some proven recipes and get a feel for what the different hops and grains have to contribute.

example: Dogfish Head 60 Minute Clone

or not

any idea on what Nectar IPA from Nectar ales uses? I really enjoy their IPA. I haven't had a chance to try dog fish head yet.

Well it's only a couple points at 75% efficiency. Mostly I was referring to your hop selections. When I run your recipe through the program I built, I come up with an OG of 1.076 at 75% extraction efficiency. If you're trying to brew within a certain style, your targets shouldn't be the absolute max or mins of the style because it leaves you with zero wiggle room.

I prefer a little extra malt character to my beer, so I like your grain bill. I too am a little curious about the hops you chose. For cost to bitterness sake I would have used 1 oz of a stronger bittering hops than Williamette like Centennial. But that is a personal choice. I punched this recipe into Beersmith for you. Using a 6.5g boil with a 5.5g yield and a 75% brewhouse efficiency I came up with these numbers (style guidelines in parenthesis):

OG estimate 1.077 (1.056-1.075)
FG estimate 1.020 (1.010-1.018)
SRM estimate 9.2 (6.0-15.0)
IBU estimate 50.6 (40.0-70.0)
ABV estimate 7.53% (5.50-7.50 %)

So it looks like it should turn out pretty good. Also, I am a fan of dry hopping, but that's a personal opinion thing. ;-)

Good luck!

I agree with the others, Ditch the cara pils, the pound of C40 is more than enough sweetness.

And ditch the Goldings. Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascades, there are any number of citrusy hops that would do well rather than the goldings.

Ah, I see my problem I had brewtargets efficiency set to 70%... I think last time I did hit the 75% mark so I'll adjust.
