I do my recipe calcs on Brewtoad. It has an auto-scale function as you change the batch size.

Although increasing the ingredients by a factor of three is the gist of what needs to be done, I would point out that this is not true for the hop additions. Because you will be brewing with a larger volume of wort you will have a better rate of utilization. Thus your target IBUs should dictate hop additions, not simply multiplying your current additions by three. As suggested before, the auto-scale functions on my brew software is the go to in these situations.
