Default Pale ale Recipe: Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial... too much?

Im working on a Pale Ale recipe that i am going to brew this weekend.

I am working off a recipe from brewing classic styles, but i was thinking that i would use Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hops instead of Horizon, Columbus, and Centennial.

Do you think using Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial will be too much citrus? Should I use

( my malts are about 11 pounds of two row, .75 pounds of munich, 0.5 pounds of crystal 40)

Thanks,

You can never have too much citrus hops, my last beer was an APA with Chinook at 60 mins, Cascade at 15 mins and then Amarillo & cascade at 1 min. Turned out to be one of my best beers ever. Full recipe here:

I've got one in primary right now with late additions of Amarillo and Centennial. I think it's going to be a great combo!
