If you're using the C40, there's no need for the carapils. Also, if you want some rye flavor, shoot for 10-15%, so that would be more like 2lbs in the batch. Also, 20m is a better flavor addition than 30m. Here's how I'd set it up.

9lbs pale malt
1lb C40L
2lbs flaked rye

bittering hops to 38 IBU
0.5oz centennial 20m
0.5oz centennial 10m
0.5oz falconer's flameout

If you're going to use a lot of rye, that's another reason not to use carapils. Rye gives a lot of mouthfeel. It also tends to produce some stuck mashes. If you can add 1/4 lb of rice hulls, I'd do so, although you're not doomed if you don't. If you've never done all-grain before, I'd assume your efficency won't be great. You can add some more 2-row, keep some light extract on hand, or just accept whatever you end up with.
