The recipe looks good, but you may have a hard time finding some of those hops. I'd think about substitutes if I were you.

I would bitter with all Warrior. The Simcoe and Amarillo are best for flavor/aroma IMO. I'd also recommend making a starter for sure...

Personally, I'd move some of the hop additions later in the boil. You'll have plenty of bitterness regardless, but the later you boil them, the more flavor and aroma they'll provide. This recipe begs for dry-hopping, as well.

I would move the warrier to all 60..and than amarillo and simcoe at 15 and 5 and 1 to 2 ounces dry hop..

This is clearly an IPA astyle that needs dry hopping for sure...it seems like big bitter additions and not enough flavor and aroma.

ditto on simcoe and amarilo for flavor and aroma..even with the high AA in simcoe it is better for flavor and aroma..IMO

135 IBU is veryhigh and will be balanced by the malt..but it needs to have more flavor and aroma..I would shoot for 2 oz of warrier at 60..1 oz simcoe 30..1 oz of amarillo and simcoe at 5..1 ounce of amarillo and simcoe dry hop..something along those line..it does seem to be like DFH 60
