I do not want any more bitterness. I was thinking of pulling some hops out and placing in a tea ball in my keg. Any comments or other ideas?
Yes, you're right. for more hops flavor and aroma, you'd add the hops closer to the end of the boil.
But you have NO flavor hops at all (hops added at 20-15 minutes) and 3 ounces of aroma hops. 3 ounces of aroma hops is minimal in a batch that size!
Hop more like this:
3 ounces bittering hops (or to 25 IBUs with this addition)
4 ounces flavor hops (cascade would be great) 15 minutes
3-4 ounces aroma hops (again, cascade is great) 5 minutes
Dryhop if more aroma is wanted.
