Ahhh, cal common yeast. With that and the other changes, it'll definitely be a different beer.

Warming up a liquid will make CO2 come out of solution, so warming it up will make your airlock bubble without any real activity taking place with your yeast, though that CO2 is carrying away our dry hop aroma as it goes. The only way to know if it's done fermenting is by using your hydrometer. Take a sample and if it's done, bottle it up!

Give it some time for the flavors to come together and see. It might be a great beer still!

I'll be making this a third time tomorrow. It's my favorite. I plan on making this my house APA, implementing slight hop variations with each batch just to slightly change things up.

im going to do this this weekend as my first pale ale! im so stoked for it.

i had some trouble finding honey malt (i did find it eventually); if i had not been able to get my hands on some, would this be a significant change?

Yea, it would. In this beer, the honey malt is really center stage in the malt.

so i had to go to 3 different LHBSs to get my ingredients (as rochester absolutely SUCKS for homebrewing) and i still didn't get everything I need.

Pacman wasnt available so I had to get Wyeast American Ale II, and they were also out of Amarillo so I opted to go with Centennial instead. Yes, I know, a bit different from Amarillo but not so much as it would ruin anything...

My main question is this:
The flaked barley and the crystal are steeping grains. Since this is a partial mash, would I bring temp up to ~150, steep, and then would i go for the main grains?

Nope, it all goes together.
Once you're mashing, you mash all the grains. No reason to steep some and mash others.
