Default Zombie Dust clone for 1st All grain Batch?

Looking to do a Zombie Dust clone for my first all grain beer? . I have done 10+ extract batches.

Please let me know if this will be too hard to do or not. If u need some more info on the equipment I have plz ask.

2 Questions

First- Is my water chemistry right to do this clone or will i need to adjust it alot to do it. I guess what I am saying is I am pretty dang sure my water isn't fit to do this clone how it is. But can it be manipulated enough to make it?

Here is my water:
pH 7.0
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Est, ppm 432
Electrical Conductivity, mmho/cm 0.72
Cations / Anions, me/L 7.7 / 8.1
ppm
Sodium, Na 14
Potassium, K 3
Calcium, Ca 90
Magnesium, Mg 30
Total Hardness, CaCO3 350
Nitrate, NO3-N 2.7 (SAFE)
Sulfate, SO4-S 17
Chloride, Cl 51
Carbonate, CO3 < 1
Bicarbonate, HCO3 327
Total Alkalinity, CaCO3 268
"<" - Not Detected

2nd Question - IS this a good recipe or does someone have a better one that they think i should try?

Thanks for any help you can be on my first all grain batch!

Your water is way too alkaline for any beer, but especially an IPA.

You can dilute it about 50-75% with distilled water or reverse osmosis water, and add some calcium sulfate (gypsum) to put some calcium and sulfate back into the water for a good ipa.

I've never made that recipe, but it looks ok at first glance.

I've made this clone twice in the last few months and it is SPOT on:

I've had quite a few people help with a comparison to ZD and all have agreed it's pretty damn close! Your recipe also looks pretty close to that recipe. I have used US-04 both times and it has come out great. Good luck!

my batch was 5.5 into the fermenter. I do full boils which for my system start at about 7 gallons and boils down to under 6 then cooling loss gets me to 5.5.

my hop schedule was:
all citra:
.6 oz - first wort hop
1 oz @15
1 oz @10
1 oz @5
1 oz @1
3oz dry hop for 7-10 days

edit: i believe that note is for the extract version, I brew all-grain

Thanks for the info.. This will be my first all grain batch and I have a keggle so I can easily do full boils as well..
