Looks good, your hop schedule is a little hard to read but it looks like its basically continuously hopped with simcoe and amarillo.

The hop schedule looks very similar to mine that I call ama/coe IPA. I use a magical hop called the ama/coe that is only found in my garage. (OK, I just mix the amarillo and simcoe together at the beginning of the brew since I want to use the same amounts of each.)

I think the hop schedule looks very good. I imagine this will be a mildly hoppy darker pale(close to amber), maybe? With all those specialty malts, I'm sure it will have a complex malt profile, the Vienna is a great addition for sure. I'm not sure about the 60 and the munich, never used them in a pale ale. I'm sure it will be delicious though.

I came up with a very similar APA recipe, except mine lacks the munich, and its all 2row. Anyway, I first wort hopped mine with an oz of Amarillo. it has a great smooth hop flavor/bitterness. I FWH all of the time now. You might try it. Either way looks real good to me.

i would maybe lower the crystal to half a pound.

i just did 6lbs vienna,4lbs pilsner, .5amarillo at 60, .5simcoe at 30, .5 of each at 5, and .5 of each dry hop. i havent tasted it yet though. i like your hop schedule and might try that next time.

there a recipe in the database called lake walk pale ale which is amarillo/simcoe and is awesome, but 6oz of hops is a lot to use in a 5gal batch

Not sure if you'll be able to tell if the amarillo or sim is giving you what you want or don't want since they were mixed throughout.
