What style are you trying to produce? Looks like an American Pale Ale, or IPA.

Sorry I meant to include that. I'm going for more of an APA. I have alot of IPA's and hoppy beers on tap, so I'm trying to go for a more balanced not too hoppy pale ale. BeerSmith shows the IBUS being just a tad bit on the high side. I might try back down some of the late additions?

American Pale Ale style bitterness ranges from 30-45 IBUs, so you're within style there just at the upper end, but your color is a bit dark. I would back down some of the Crystal 60L and/or some of the Victory Malt for either some more 2-row or a little Pils Malt.
