In my opinion, 1lb of cara-pils is way too high with 1lb of crystal. You could probably get rid of it completely...

I'd move your 0.5 oz 45 addition to 60 (so 1oz @ 60), and your 0.5 oz 30 addition to 15 (so, 1oz @ 15).

I just prefer a 60/15/5/0 schedule for my APA's generally.

Looks good. Chinook/Cascade make a good combo

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll scratch the cara-pills and make the adjustments to the hop schedule. Hopefully it will turn out pretty good.
