I'd say your going for super hoppy, about 102 IBU's, Your SG sound to be about 1.071
Your bitterness ratio is about 1.440 IBU/SG
IF you like hoppy brew it, but a bit too hoppy for me.

I'd probably want less IBUs, more aroma, and higher gravity from simple sugar.

I would leave the steeped hops(FWH, basically) through the boil and move the 30 min to 5 min.

personally I wouldnt dry hop with that much cascade. i would dry hop with some more simcoe and amarillo in addition to the zeus to bring out those flavors a littler more.
