Default First Original Recipe - Imperial Stout

I have a few extract batches under my belt and decided to try and formulate my own new recipe. I have lately been a fan of the imperial stout and decided to try creating a recipe for one using Ray Daniels' "Designing Great Beers" as my guide. Any inputs on something that seems far out of the norm would be greatly appreciated.

You might consider scaling up the sugar and scaling down the DME. I don't have hard numbers, but the FGs on extract brews tend to be high. 80 IBUs will definitely help balance a high FG, but I bet it'll turn out pretty thick the way it is written up now.
