Yep thats going to be fine. you might want to throw a small amount of saaz in the last 20 minutes, like a half ounce or so, for a little interest. Its unlikely to offend anyone. I dont know what the AA on your saaz is, but id aim for 15-20 IBUs.

Really all that will matter is how good your process and temp control is. Any mistakes or off flavors will show.
