Default english pale ale critique

i am planning on doin an english pale ale in the near future and was wantin some opinions on my recipe. i do 2.13 gallon batches i use my mrbeer fermenter. here is my all grain recipe my efficiency is about 66-68%
4#4oz maris otter
8oz crystal 10L
4oz crystal 40L
.5oz fuggle FWH
.25oz fuggle 60 min
.25oz fuggle 30 min
.25oz fuggle 20 min
.25oz fuggle 5 min
.5oz fuggle dry hop
mash temp 152F 60-75min
estimated-OG 1.060-FG 1.015-IBU 37-SRM 9
havent decided on what yeast to use yet but i was leaning toward the dry yeast side and i was wanting to try pitching a hoppy blonde ale onto this yeast cake if possible. and i have read alot here on thinner mashes being well i dont want to say better but have worked in favor of some brewers here. i usually do 1.25 to 1.33 ratio and was thinking about 1.5-2 for this one. thanks

Simplify your hop schedule. The traditional UK ales use two additions, one early and one late. It works.

Yes. Keep close to your original IBU number. An IBU number of about 75% of the OG number is a good ROT in this style.

+1. Don't over-complicate the hops schedule with EPAs.

As for the yeast, use something that has some estery quality to it.

I have been using Wyeast 1275 lately - yum!
