Default Imperial stout recipe help

I've never made a stout before (as I'm a die hard I/IPA fan...), but I'm working on a recipe while my IIPA conditions. So far I have:

Wlp007 yeast from starter

-10 lbs Pale Malt Extract
- 3 lbs Honey (to primary)
- 2 lbs Roasted Barley
- 1 lbs Chocolate Malt
- 1 lbs Crystal malt 60L
- 8 oz Black Patent

- 5 oz Galena Hops (60 mins)
- 1 oz East Kent Goldings Hops (5 mins)

- 3 tsp Gypsum (60 mins)
- 1 tsp Yeast Nutrient (to primary)
- 2 oz Oak Chips (in secondary)

I was going to call it Drauger's Kiss (Drauger roughly being a viking zombie) So I thought the oaked antiquey flavor mixed with slight mead-like honey notes would be great. I want it to be a super roasty, warming ale.

I was going to use 1oz of bittering hops but beersmith said I needed more ibus.

1.096 og, 86 ibu, 10% abv
Please give me any tips, hints, criticisms, or recipe ideas you can. Ideas on possible flavor profiles it may have would be great too.

You will get more help if this was in the "Recipe" section.
