Default Critique my first recipe

This was adapted from an ale put on by a member of my local brew club that tasted just like Mill street organic lager. I wanted to up the alcohol a little, but im not sure if the hops will even out the maltiness. Let me know if this looks like a reasonable recipe, or if its awful. Thanks!

Bitterness 21.3 IBU
Original Gravity - 1.057
Final Gravity - 1.013

8 lbs. Domestic 2-row
1. lbs. American Vienna
1 lbs. 10 oz Corn Flaked

1.25 oz. Czech Saaz (Pellets, 3.9 %AA) boiled 60 min.
0.5 oz. Czech Saaz (Pellets, 3.9 %AA) boiled 15 min.
0.25 oz. Czech Saaz (Pellets, 3.9 %AA) boiled 1 min.

I did one similar to this and it came out a little sweet. I had same IBU as your recipe. It was a great beer, just sweeter than I wanted. I decided when I remake it I would add at least 5 IBU's.

However, I think you should brew it as you have planned here and see what you think. It shouldn't be bad by any means.
