Remove the Biscuit and Lower the Crystal to 40L. Hoppy is an ambiguous term, do you want bitterness? or more hop flavor(spicey, citrus, or lemon)? or aroma?

I would scale back the Apollo addition to ether .5oz or .75oz and I would first wort hop this addition to. Toss it in during your first runnings from the mash. Right now the Apollo addition is about 80 ibus. Then I would use the three ounces of the simcoe from 20 minutes down to 5 minutes. And dry hop with the two ounces of sorachi ace. I think that will be a nice beer you're looking for.

Maybe sub some vienna malt for a few pounds of the 2-row. A little more color and a different malt flavor contribution.

Sorry that wasn't very clear, I didn't mean to hop the wort as you won't get much out of doing so. First Wort Hopping is the technique I was suggesting, it is where you collect the first running from the mash tun into the boil kettle. The hops are added to the boil kettle as the mash is lautering into the boil kettle. Hopefully that clears things up, it imparts a smoother bittering addition.

This actually turned out great! The Sorachi Ace added a nice sweetness during the dry hopping... i cold crashed it for the last 2 days of dry hopping... not a lot of yeast in the bottles either. An amazing XP ale!! Great Job me, you're the man!
