Default Feedback on all Cascade IPA

Hey there. I'm brewing single hop IPA's in order to really learn hop characteristics. My first was a Nelson Sauvin IPA which was fantastic. I want to do Cascade next. Since hops vary in bitterness, I thought it best to get feedback on my recipe before I brew to make sure I'm putting together something that will accomplish what I'm after - which is highlight the hop in the beer. I'm fairly new to brewing with 50 gallons or so under my belt. Still doing extract for now since I just had twins a couple months ago...
thanks for any feedback!

If I had 6 oz of Cascade to use in an ipa I'd go for a hop schedule like this (i.e. More hops late in the boil).

Fwh/60 - 1.5 oz
15 - 0.75 oz
10 - 0.75 oz
5 - 0.75 oz
0 - 1 oz
Dry - 1.25 oz

BTW, this is totally subjective.

Ditch the 30 minute addition and put it at less than 5 minutes. I usually do a large 0 minute addition with a 20 minute hop stand at 175 degrees
