Your malt profile is fine, pick a neutral yeast, Wyeast 1056 is my favorite and make a starter. Also if you want to decrease bitterness, I know it may seem uncomfortable, but try out hop bursting. It is a great way to work on your brewing technique and really gets that wonderful hop aroma and flavor without the bitterness. I recently made a Belgian Dubbel IPA with a ton of Centennial, Citra, and Galaxy at the end. Came out suuuuper fruity, lots of notes of lemon, grapefruit and orange peel. My non IPA friends dig it, and its just a very unique taste you don't commonly get from commercial IPAs.
