Might be late but it is probably worth saying anyway; in my humble experiences, many of the Australian hops are good for tropical flavors. Which seems almost stereotypical when I think about it...but anyway, there is a hop not mentioned yet called Motueka which imparts great lime, mango, and pineapple notes.

The last thing that I will mention is that I often dry hop with Chinook for grapefruit. For some reason I find that it is very noticeable when used this way.

I like where you're going with the hop bill with a bit of simplifying. I know you want a hop forward beer but those IBUs are still pretty high for a pale ale. Not that you need to stick to the style guidelines but they are a good resource and in the link below you can see IBUs are 30-45.

Hops should be balanced with the gravity of the beer. Look up the bitterness ratio for a Pale Ale because I'm sure at 1.58 you're pretty high. For a 1.055 beer I think I would try and get in around 55-60, maybe by doing a half ounce of columbus at first. You'll get plenty of hop aroma/flavor from late additions and that massive dryhop. Again, just my thoughts, I don't know how much you love hops.

This is good advise. I'll look at the numbers when I get home. Thanks man!

Thank you to everyone for the input, I think I've nailed down a pretty good recipe. Just as long as i execute it well, it should turn out great.

OG: 1.055
SRM: 9
IBU: 53 (will probably be higher, depending on AA content)
ABV: 5.5%
Yeast: US-05
Efficiency: 62%
Mash @ 154

10.5 lbs. Pale 2 row
1 lbs. Crystal 60L
8 oz. Cara Pils
8 oz. Flaked Wheat

0.5 oz. Columbus @60(FWH)
0.5 oz Cascade @10 & 5
0.5 oz. Citra @10 & 5
0.5 oz. Simcoe @10 & 5
1 oz. Amarillo @FO

Dry Hop: 10 days
1 oz. Cascade
1 oz. Citra
1 oz. Amarillo

Maybe?

That looks good to me! IBU's are more suitable I think and they may seem low but with three ounces of dry hops you'll have a ton of flavor/aroma.
