Default Questions on my new recipe...

I'm still new at beer making. I finally decided to get away from those kits and start making my own recipes. This is my first crack at it:

½ pound crushed Briess 20L Crystal Malt (6 Row)
1 pound crushed Briess 2 Row Pale Ale Malt (Lovibond 3.4)
"Steeped for 60 minutes"
2 pounds Extra Light Dried Malt Extract
2 Pounds Briess Dried Malt Extract (Sparkling Amber)
1 Ounce Amarillo Hop Pellets (Alpha 7.0%)
"1/2 ounce at start of boil, rest 10 minutes before end of boil"
1 Ounce Cascade Pellet Hops (Alpha 6.3%)
"1 ounce 10 minutes before end of boil"
"total boil time of 60 minutes"
1 Pack of Dry Ale Yeast

Can anyone tell me my approximate alcohol content of this?
And if I wanted to raise the content, would I use more Sparkling Amber Malt or Extra Light Malt. Finally, how much does 1 pound of malt raise the alcohol content? I'm an American Pale Ale Drinker. Thanks

Yes its just fine for an American Pale Ale. I would use .5 Amarillo at 60 .5 Cascade at 30 .5 Cascade 15 and .5 Amarillo at flame out

I just got done brewing. I used your advice RICLARK, adding another pound of light malt and adding the hops as you suggested. I'll report back in 6 weeks after a taste test. Thanks again
