Default Feedback on Pale/Munich/Vienna Pale Ale

Debating what this is going to turn out like. Looking for the maltier end of pale ales with some clear presence of the malt bill. However, I don't want to end up with overly sweet, heavy beer. My intent is to mash relatively low around 150 and hop it to around 35 IBU most of which is from a 60m addition of Magnum with late additions of Cascade and Willamette.

OG:  1.053
FG:  1.013
IBU: 35 (est)
SRM: 5

70%  10.0lb Great Western Pale Malt (3L)
17%   2.5lb Best Malz Vienna Malt (3L)
10%   1.5lb Best Malz Munich Malt (5L)
3%     .5lb CaraFoam (1L)

Mash @ 150F for ~60m (long conversion)

60m   .75 oz Magnum (14%) [~23 IBU]
15m   .50 oz Cascade (5.5%)*
15m   .50 oz Willamette (5.5%)*
 5m   .50 oz Cascade (5.5%)*
 5m   .50 oz Willamette (5.5%)*
 0m  1.00 oz Cascade (5.5%)*
 0m  1.00 oz Willamette (5.5%)*

Whirlpool for ~30m w/ flameout hops before chilling.


* AA% is guestimate; homegrown hops

Looks good but I'd be tempted to bring either the OG down a bit or the IBU up to 40. Looks like a nice grist for something in the 1045-1050 OG area with the Vienna and Munich bringing up the body and the hops providing a nice floral kick to it. You could do a short second mash at a higher temperature as well.
