I might up the IBUs a bit, atleast on my system hop bursting results in less (softer?) bitterness than the calculator suggests. I did a similar beer last summer and really enjoyed the combo of Cascade/Amarillo and Hefe yeast (I used 3068, which is my favorite strain). Some dry hops can be a fun way to go as well if you want some added aromatics.

Good luck.

With White Labs WLP380 yeast it won't be an American Wheat.

Agree 100%...plus the pilsner malt... I would say your making a german hefe...and 12 oz of hops to get 28 ibus?! Your wasting quite a few hops by not doing a 60 minute addition.
