Default Recipe Help - Chinook Blonde

I am trying to brew a blonde ale with lots of hops flavor, but, not too bitter. I really liked Northern Brewer's Chinook IPA so I modified their recipe to drop the OG and IBUs.

Here is what I have so far:

7# 5oz. 2-row
8 oz. Caramel Pils
3 oz. Caramel 60

0.34 oz. Chinook (11.4% AA) @ 30 minutes.
0.33 oz. Chinook (11.4% AA) @ 15 minutes.
0.33 oz. Chinook (11.4% AA) @ 5 minutes.
0.33 oz. Chinook (11.4% AA) @ 0 minutes.
0.67 oz. Chinook (11.4% AA) @ dry hops for 1 week.

I already purchased the ingredients. But, there are 2 oz. of Chinook I can move around.

@75% efficiency brewpal predicts 1.044 OG.
Tinseth predicts 20 IBU.

Does this recipe sound foolish?

Another recipe I really like which I would like to emulate is Citra Blonde by Widmer Brothers. That beer has tons of hop flavor but is not bitter at all. Will I get something like that with this?

That’s a good idea! 2-5-12 is going to be a dry run on Widmer Brothers Citra Summer Blonde. but because I have just upgraded my mash tun to a 10 gal, my efficiency has been a bit lower, ( I'm working on it) so my plan of attack is to go something like this. . .

Mash 151F 60 mins
10 lb 2 row pale malt
4 oz caramel 10L Malt
4 oz honey Malt
30 min fly sparge
6.5 Gal
90 min boil
1 oz Millenium Boil last 20 mins
1 oz Warrier Boil last 20 Mins
2 oz Cetra Dry Hop 5 Days

(Remember, If you Brew it, They will come.)

My Chinook Blonde had the grain bill above with this hop schedule:

1oz Chinook 11.4% @ 15min
0.5oz Chinook 11.4% @ 0min
0.5oz Chinook 11.4% dry hop for 1 week

It turned out awesome. The flavoring and aroma were great. I can't stop drinking it.

I think this was a bit less hop flavor and aroma than the Widmer Citra Blonde. But not much.
