Default Split Batch Amber IPA: Feedback please

I am doing an 18 gallon batch of Vienna lager and my plan is to do a boil for 12 gallons of it with a single hopping for the Vienna to 23IBU and then do 6 gallons with lager yeast and the other 6 with WLP 530 for an amber belgian.

The second boil will be for a 6 gallon batch of amber IPA which you see below. I added DME to up the gravity and some sugar to dry it out slightly and boost abv as well. Let me know your thoughts on the hopping schedule as I know it is a little busy.

Also FYI the First wort hopping will be in an igloo at about 160F for 2 hours while the Vienna lager boil is taking place, is there an issue with that long, i am kind of curious to see what it brings out. Thanks.

Gratuitous bump, my apologies. Just want to see if some experienced IPA brewers can comment. Brewing Friday and always appreciate the support.

Thanks

I don't have a ton of experience, but I might move the 20 minute hops to 15. That's a little more standard, I think. I did an India Brown with a big hop charge at 15 and 0 that came out really well, so I think that'll be fine. I can't comment too much on the hop combinations.

I've really been into do split batches as of late. I've not done a true partigyle before, but I've split runnings to do different but similar gravity beers: 1.056 wort watered down and capped with crystal for 1.046 special bitter and added sugar for 1.058 AIPA. 1.06 malt watered down for pils and sugared and capped for 1.08 tripel.

Thanks for the feedback! I am excited to do this split batch. I have 2 young kids and my wife will appreciate the fewer brew days. Getting 5 gallons of Vienna lager, Amber Belgian and an amber IPA out of one brew day will rock.

Any more advise welcomed!
