Default Need some suggestions on IPA recipe for a wedding

Going to brew an IPA for my sisters wedding, her fiance really enjoys IPAs and surly furious is his favorite beer. I came up with the following. Would really appreciate some opinions on this! What do y'all think? Will this be too malty? My concern is the combo of aromatic and C60?

Style: IPA (American?)

Est FG: 1.015
Est Abv: 6.6%
SRM: 9.1
IBU: 57.8

Batch Size: 5.5 GALLONS

Grain bill:
5 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) 36.4 %
5 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) 36.4 %
2 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) 14.5 %
12.0 oz Barley, Flaked (1.7 SRM) 5.5 %
8.0 oz Aromatic Malt (26.0 SRM) 3.6 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) 3.6 %

Hop schedule:
1.50 oz Perle [8.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min 33.9 IBUs
0.50 oz Perle [8.00 %] - Boil 30.0 min 8.7 IBUs
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min 7.7 IBUs
1.00 oz Liberty [4.30 %] - Boil 10.0 min 4.4 IBUs
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min 3.1 IBUs

Yeast:
1.0 pkg American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) [124.21 ml] Yeast (3Liter Starter)

Dry Hop:
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Dry Hop 8.0 Days
1.00 oz Liberty [4.30 %] - Dry Hop 8.0 Days

Single Infusion, Batch Sparge, Medium Body

I think it may be a little malty. I'd up the IBUs up to 75 (at least) to offset the malt a bit more.

HOPS: Warrior, Ahtanum, Simcoe, Amarillo
YEAST: English Ale

OG: 15º Plato
ABV: 6.2% v/v
COLOR: 27 ºSRM
IBU: 99

Looks pretty up the middle. IBU's are lower so people shouldn't complain as much about the bitterness. Nothing really wrong with it. You could be a bit high on adjuncts. I would probably strip the grainbill down to the pale malt, marris otter and crystal 60. To make it seem less bitter you could cut down the 60 minute addition to 25IBU range and then do more hops late. Your IBU's will be even lower if not the same but you'll have more hop flavor to cover up any perceived bitterness and alcohol. Could work out in your favor.

What kind of people are you brewing for?

Ya since a lot of people will drink it, I didn't want it super bitter... maybe I'll push it closer to 60 IBUs?

There's nothing wrong with playing it safe. Hopheads are few and far between in the real world. It's better to be well received.

Are you locked into an IPA or would you be open to try some things? There's a few recipes on the forum that tend to do well in crowds of novices and non beer drinkers.

Well ya I would like to stick to an IPA since the brew is for him but others will drink it, so I want to find a happy medium.
