Two pounds of victory malt is too much! Like four times too much- a .5 pound would be great.

You're going for an American pale ale? I'd cut the bittering hops and some of the late addition hops, as much as I love hops and move some later in the boil or for dryhopping.

Like this:
1.00 oz Warrior [15.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min
1.00 oz Centennial [10.00 %] - Boil 15
1.00 oz cascade 10 minutes
1 oz centennial 5 minutes
1 oz cascade 0 minutes
dryhop with cascade or centennial or chinook
