Default First recipe attempt... look ok?

This is my first attempt at trying to make my own recipe on beersmith. I have done a few kits before that turned out pretty good, but I want to try something new. I am going for an a really hoppy DIPA with lots of hop flavor and aroma

Amount Item Type % or IBU
3 lbs Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 24.79 %
1 lbs Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 8.26 %
6 lbs 9.6 oz Pale Liquid Extract (8.0 SRM) Extract 54.55 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 4.13 %
2.00 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [12.20 %] (60 min) Hops 62.9 IBU
2.00 oz Simcoe [13.00 %] (Dry Hop 10 days) Hops (All pellets)
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (Dry Hop 10 days) Hops -
1.00 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [12.20 %] (20 min) Hops 19.0 IBU
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [8.60 %] (20 min) Hops 13.4 IBU
1.00 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [12.20 %] (10 min) Hops 11.4 IBU
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [8.60 %] (10 min) Hops 8.0 IBU
1 lbs Honey (1.0 SRM) Sugar 8.26 % (late boil)
8.7% ABV 114 IBU's
Does this look ok? Any major problems? Advice?

One other thing I was wondering about, what is the best way to dry hop with pellets? strait into the fermenter, or in a bag? Last time I brewed I threw 1oz right into secondary and I had a hell of a time trying to rack around it a week later.

that recipe looks ok. id give it a try. they sell a long, skinny metal screen what amounts to a mesh ball that works great for dryhopping in a carboy. thats what i use. you get some hop leftovers from pellets when using this, but not a lot.

How much hops does one of those hold? Does it decrease the efficiency of the hops by very much?
