Default Vienna Pale Lager... thoughts?

I need to get a lager in the pipeline and have been interested in these new IPL's (India Pale Lager) that I've been seeing recently, so I thought I'd try to make a blend between a Vienna Lager and American Pale Ale. German malts with an American hop twist, and a lager yeast of course. Let me know what you guys think.

looks pretty well thought out. I'm not familiar with that yeast but as long as it cleans up quickly you should be in good shape.
