Default critique my honey wheat brew----

(Edit)- Made a slight change. Changed the hops to lower IBU down to 22.
Here goes--- Let me know what you think.

OG 1.056
FG 1.014
IBU 22
ABV 5.4 %

3 lb Flaked wheat - mashed at 150 for about 60 min
1 lb Canadian Honey Malt - (is this too much honey malt? Should I cut down to 1/2 lb?)
3 lb Light DME
1 lb Wheat DME

.75 oz Tettnanger (4.5%) - boiled 60 min
.5 oz Liberty (4.0%) - boiled 15 min
.5 oz Liberty (4.0%) - boiled 2 min
.25 oz tettnanger (4.5%) - boiled 2 min

Any other suggestions for hops? I am looking for a "spicy" kind of flavor and aroma. Should I add any other misc. ingredients to achieve this?

Will probably use an American Ale yeast. I am open to suggestions. I really didn't want to use a heffe yeast but I am open to suggustions. I am looking for a slighty "spicy" brew without the tart of some yeasts. Hope that helps.

I am brewing Sunday, so I will hit the brew store later this week. THANKS!!!

You won't get spicy from Cascades but more citrusy. I like Tettnager hops lately which is the finishing hops in Redhook ESB. You might also consider Saaz hops. The IBU's seem high for a wheat beer.
