Default Last Minute IPA recipe input

Hey guys, I am doing my first IPA. I have never done one before so I was hoping to get a little input on my hop schedule. I am using stuff I have laying around, so that is why the hop variety might seem a little odd. Here is the recipe, let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

I'd move the Columbus to a 60 minute hop since you only have 1/2 oz. of Galena for bittering. I'd make your Citra a flavor hop, use the full oz. and add at 20 minutes left in the boil. Move the Ahtanum to flameout for aroma. I'd also back off on the Munich to 1/2 lb., add 2 lb. two-row malt, drop the corn sugar entirely and increase the DME to 3 lbs. or whatever amount to get you around 1.060.

Here's a recent IPA batch I did and it turned out exceptional. If you have gypsum and calcium chloride, use it when you wash your grains. My efficiency was a little off so my O.G. was 1.060 on this batch. My F.G. ended up high with this yeast, about 1.020 so my ABV was just over 5%. But the taste was excellent.
