The first thing to do is get rid of the "amber liquid extract" and replace it with pale. Then, you can add caramel malt if you want more than the 8 oz of the 20L in the steep. Biscuit malt is nice in small doses, but I think 1 pound is way too much for an English IPA.
For hops, I'd add more hops late in the boil, and particularly like East Kent Goldings at 15/0 minutes in the boil.
