Default First shot at recipe making: Extra Pale Ale Recipe Critique

Ok so this is my first shot at brewing without a kit or set recipe, and i wanted to throw together a quick light ale,so I was looking for some confirmation/critique of this recipe:

5 gallon batch

3 lbs exta light DME
2 lbs rice dry extract
6 oz Melanoidin-specialty grain
1 oz Vangard hops, boiled 60 minutes.
Nottingham yeast

Looking to do a 4 gallon boil.

Standard 2-stage fermentation process.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

I think of an XPA as being hoppier than that, what you have looks more like a blonde (not that there is anything wrong with that). You are pushing the upper limit for an adjunct like rice, I'd probably go 4 lbs DME, 1 lb rice extract to prevent it from getting too dry. Hope it turns out well.
