Default looking for some IPA recipe feedback,advice

So i I felt like throwing an IPA recipe together, its the first recipe I've written on my own and I'd like as much feedback as possible on it before I decide to spend a bunch of money on it and brew it.
So any feedback is greatly appreciated.


lbs
7 0 Light Dry Malt Extract
1 0 Amber Dry Malt Extract

use time oz variety form aa
Boil 60 mins 0.75 Chinook leaf 13.0
Boil 60 mins 0.75 Tomahawk leaf 16.0
Boil 30 mins 0.5 Chinook leaf 13.0
Boil 30 mins 0.5 Tomahawk leaf 16.0
Boil 15 mins 0.5 Cascade leaf 5.5
Boil 15 mins 0.25 Chinook leaf 13.0
Boil 15 mins 0.25 Tomahawk leaf 16.0
Boil 5 mins 0.25 Tomahawk leaf 16.0
Boil 5 mins 0.25 Cascade leaf 5.5
Boil 5 mins 0.25 Chinook leaf 13.0
Dry hop 10 days 0.25 Chinook leaf 13.0

I'm thinking 10 day primary, and I don't know how much time for secondary.

I didn't do the formal math, but this seems like it may be a little unbalanced in BU/GU. I might take out your 30 min additions all together... or maybe shift and add them to the 15 and 5 min additions.

I'd like to see your OG and IBU... but that's a lot of hops to input.

Also, I would drop the Amber, bump up the Light, and steep some crystal, up to a lb.

re: the amber, I was thinking the same thing. I had also thought about the crystal but wasn't too sure about it.
according to beer calc. it says the OG is around 1.072, and IBU of 78.1.

A total of half an ounce of dry hops? I dry hop with a minimum of 2oz.

edit: just noticed that you are using leaf, I'm not sure what kind of difference that makes, but I have always used pellets.

I guess it's not as bitter as I thought it would be. Looks pretty good, although I agree with costa, dry hop at least 1 oz. if not more...
