Looks ok, but not really an IPA without bittering hops.

Not enough hop time. My best IPA's have had 90 minute boils. I like the selection of hops you got though. I would go with cascade for 90, summit and amarillo for 60, 1/2 summit and 1/2 cascade for 5 and the other 1/2's at flameout

I'm going for smooth bitterness with a lot of hop flavor and aroma. Do you think I'll get that with my hop schedule? Although I do like your suggestion djsethall.

Like it was said before, You should add the hops at the start of the boil. What is the AAs on the Summit, 15+?

Just add less than 1oz at 60 minutes if you are concerned about a harsh bitterness.

You should look into First Wort Hopping if you want a smooth bitterness.

Edit:
Oh this is an extract brew, perhaps you can emulate it by putting the hops in with the steeping grains?

I think you will get enough utilization from 20 minute additions to make a fine ale, assuming a full wort boil. But I do get the impression that Summit is one of those high-alpha American hops that I perceive as harsh, oniony, and catty. I'd bitter with a small amount of something more neutral, if smooth was what I was after, and load the flavor and aroma into the last 5 and dry.

Personally the best IPA i ever made was 100% Amarillo hops. Just a though.

I think that recipe is fine, it's just semantics on what you call it. It will have a smooth bitterness, if much at all, but you aren't loading it with crystal malt either. You'll get a nice punch of flavor though. I once did a single malt ale with 3.5 oz of Amarillo at 15 minutes only and definitely came to grips what Amarillo is as a hop. Mmm! I don't think you'll get much from the rye but then I haven't used it in a PM before and you may have different experience/perception of it.

I agree- summit can be "oniony" at 20 minutes. I love the amarillo, and the rye. I'd probably not use the maris otter though, unless you have to and it's already crushed. It's too "bready" for a hop-forward IPA in my opinion. I'd use two-row, with maybe a pound of Munich or some victory if you want to provide malt backbone (assuming that's why the MO is in there).
