Default partial mash with wheat

I am going to help my brother with his first partial mash tomorrow, but he's doing an American Wheat beer and I have never used wheat. Are there any special considerations for mashing with wheat? Here's the mash bill:

1 # pilsner malt
1# torrified wheat
8 oz carapils malt

We'll be adding some light malt and wheat extract (probably something like 1.5 # of each) to the boil to complete the fermentables.

Should we proceed with the mash as "normal" (60 minutes, 155 degrees F)?

it is a 5-gallon batch - I am going to mess around with BeerSmith to figure out how much extract we need to use. The 3 additional pounds was a guesstimate.

We can't double the mash grains, but we can double the extract (~3 # each of pale LME and wheat DME)
