Default Imperial Java Stout

Here's the recipe, tell me what yall think!

2.13 Gallon Batch

3 lbs Dark LME
1 lb Pale LME
.5 lb Roasted Barley
.25 lb Chocolate Malt
.25 lb Carapils
.5 oz Fuggles - 60 min.
.5 oz Fuggles - 20 min.
.5 oz Fuggles - 5 min.
1 packet Nottingham Ale yeast

Grains were steeped for 30 min. at 152 degrees F

After 4 days in primary I added 1 cup whole coffee beans. After 12 days in the primary I racked onto secondary with the following:

.5 lb dark brown sugar
.25 lb corn syrup
half cup coffee beans
24 oz. freshly brewed espresso

The aroma coming from the fermenter is absolutely delicious, and I cannot wait to try it! I expect that this one will take some time to develop to its full potential due to the significant amount of fermentables. The reason I called it an imperial stout is the alcohol volume, not the IBU's, but correct me if this is a misnomer. BeerSmith has it at 26.5 IBU's and 8.45% est. abv. I think that the somewhat low IBU's will be well suited for the significant amount of espresso that I added. What are your thoughts about this brew?
