Default which style?

So I am new to this community but not to homebrew at all. So today I decided to make a brew with the malt I have at my house.

The malts were:
46% German pilsner malt
25% Munich malt
17% Wheat malt
7% Vienna malt
5% Carapils
Estimated OG: 1.049-1.057
Estimated FG: 1.012-1.015
EBC (srm): 13°EBC (7° srm)

I looked into the bjcp style guidelines and didn't find anything close (the wheat throws it off).
The reason for this thread is both for deciding IBU and style.
Thanks in advance

Until next time RDWHAHB
Yours sincerely Tarnas

Postum scriptum. I will make this with a lager yeast

It looks like a Vienna Lager with wheat. You could shoot for a BU:GU ratio around .6 (28-32 IBU) and finish with a moderate level of noble hops. Maybe .5oz Saaz at 15 and 5. That said style doesn't really matter unless you intend to enter a competition. I think the grain bill looks great, full of subtle malty flavors without too much residual sugar. I wouldn't go over 154 for the mash and you should end up with something very drinkable. Good luck.

Somehow, which I don't quite know yet I posted on two different forums. For that I am sorry.

But thanks for the answers
