Default Dry-hopped Rye Red Ale Recipe Critique - Partial Mash

I'm trying to do a red/amber ale with some rye and hoppiness. Thought Simcoe and Amarillo would go nicely. Here's my first crack at a recipe, please critique. I've never used rye before. Oh, and I have 3 lbs of leftover extract that I need to use - hence the 3 lbs extract + 1 lb 2-row. Thanks for your help!

3.00 lb Pale Liquid Extract (6.0 SRM) Extract 50.00 %
1.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 16.67 %
1.00 lb Rye Malt (4.7 SRM) Grain 16.67 %
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 8.33 %
0.50 lb Melanoiden Malt (20.0 SRM) Grain 8.33 %
0.50 oz Simcoe [13.00 %] (60 min) Hops 36.2 IBU
1.00 oz Simcoe [13.00 %] (Dry Hop 14 days) Hops -
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [8.50 %] (Dry Hop 14 days) Hops -
0.50 oz Simcoe [13.00 %] (5 min) Hops 7.2 IBU
1 Pkgs American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) Yeast-Ale

Est Original Gravity: 1.061 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.015 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 6.06 %
Bitterness: 43.4 IBU
Est Color: 12.3 SRM

I'd take a look at this recipe: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/all-grain-kits-298/index2.html#post1769
Bear Republic's Hop Rod Rye (above) sounds like something you are trying to get close to. Haven't tried the recipe myself, but I love the real thing.

Uh...how big is this batch? I plugged the ingredients into ProMash and got an OG of 1038 in five gallons US.

Anyway. I find that much Melanoidin to be excessive. It's really potent stuff. I find 4 ounces in five gallons is usually more than sufficient.

Cheers,

Bob
