Default Help with barleywine.... hop schedule mostly

I've been working on this recipe for the past few weeks. I've looked at many award winning recipes to get good grasp on the grain bill.

My main questions are:
1) Hop Schedule: I want a slightly hoppy beer. i want it to be more balanced then over the top. Does this hop schedule look ok? If not, I have Amarillo(6oz), Ahtanum(5oz), Centennial(4oz), Chinook(4oz), Magnum(2oz) & Nugget(4oz) hops in the freezer.

2) Yeast/Mash: I am using Pacman for the yeast and was planning on mashing at 152f. should i go for a higher or lower mash temp with pacman.

Keep in mind this is a 3.5 gallon batch.

I would think moving the Amarillo Gold to 15 minutes might increase the bitterness a little bit, but also help balance the hop flavor you'll get at the end. I don't know the answer to you're second question - sorry.
