I wouldn't have added anything. If your looking for a light hop flavor get a pale ale kit.

If you have the recipe, just follow the recipe. Am I missing something here?

Try brewing (if you like this recipe enough) the exact recipe 5 times using different hops. Save a few bottles from each and compare. That will give you some idea of what hops you may like the most.
Keep tasting notes beforehand because the first batch will mellow and change in the bottle by the time you age the last batch. Or just have one mad brew weekend.
I tried this and it sorta let me know which hops I would avoid. There are so many varieties, it would take years to know hops for sure. But definitely keep your ROUGE-EXPERIMENTAL attitude!

I was planning on doing this same thing with my next brew. Highly Hopped Cream Ale Extract.
