Default IPA recipe-any thoughts?

Next week I want to try a double IPA and I'm using another recipe as a shell, but I've tweaked it a bit. How does this sound:

Specialty malts:
1lb. American Caramel 80L
1 lb. Munich

10lbs. Muntons Light LME

1oz. Centennial for 60 min.
2oz. Simcoe for 10 min.
2oz. Simcoe for 1 min.

Dry Hop 1-2 oz. Simcoe whole hops

Any feedback is appreciated!

You can check my recipe pulldown for my "Hop Beatdown" Double IPA. It rocks faces, quite frankly. I seriously recommend steeping oak chips in the secondary along with dry hops for 2 weeks. It adds an amazing layer of complexity, like caramel, etc., without adding that "oaky" taste. Also, since it's a Double IPA, you want it to finish a little sweeter than a regular IPA (if you just make a high-alc/high-IBU IPA, then it's an imperial; in my experience, the "double" refers to a heavier beer all around). So I'd add some kind of dextrine malt. I used carapils.

Anyway, I'm very proud of my recipe. Not gloating, just proud of it.
