If your numbers are forfive gallons of beer, you've got a nice hoppy pale ale/IPA. If they ARE for 2 gallons....you have a HUGE Triple IPA/Barleywine. I'm calc-ing an OG of 1.141 using Beer Tools.

1.150 OG from beersmith... assuming it's a 5 gallon recipe it looks like a decent IPA.

pilsner is not the typical base for an IPA given it's grainy, bready, sweetish flavor. If you're looking for a more traditional IPA you would need to change the pilsner out for some two-row (or light extract). also I've no experience with caramel pils, but at that amount it would likely not hurt anything. Otherwise, for five gallons this looks alright.
