Default FWH/recipe feedback?

Hi, I'm making an AG pale ale Friday. I've been reading up on FWH and am going to try it for the first time. I've read some different things about the effect of FWH, and am wondering if my flavor additions are redundant here? Or the dry hopping? Going for a PA on the low IBU end with fruity (but not strong citrusy) flavor. Thanks!

I think it looks good, I would go with it. I have done first wort hopping a few times and feel you get a better well rounded flavor. With using the same hops in your flavor addition as your FWH should add a nice touch.
