No way, def not too much. I like it overall. I'd say move your 30min to flameout, and maybe up the bittering a touch to compensate for the IBUs.
I'd also consider using a light malt extract instead of amber and steeping a little crystal 40 and/or whatever else you'd like. The idea is that with darker extracts you don't know exactly what went into it, but with lighter ones it's just base malt and probably a little carapils.
It's not an imperial, more of a standard strength rye IPA. I'd probably do just a half pound of crystal 40 and call it good.
