That beer looks great!
I have a similar attempt in work right now, about to transfer to secondary. I didn't build a device to dump the hops. I picked up one of these pill holders at the drugstore. It has 28 little compartments with a flip top on each compartment. I weighed out the hop additions on a gram scale ahead of time and stuffed each addition into one of the compartments. I then labled each compartment with the appropriate boil time. I was jumping up and down every 2.5 minutes to dump the hop ration, so at least I didn't get bored during the boil. My brew was a partial extract as well, but all of the LME went in at the end, so the boil gravity should have been low. (Copied from the White Labs San Diego IPA recipe) I had read how the wort gravity effected hop uptake during boil, but had not found a reference to how the wort volume effects it. Can someone point me to a source on that? I am pretty new to this as well.

Right on, I didn't mean hop utilization wasn't relevant, just that I'm aware of the issue when changing your water volumes and if anyone had success with a half-boil.

From what little I know, doubling the hops sounds kinda reasonable. I'll check that website and I'll compare my past recipes with some full boils of the same/similar brews and see if I can't figure it out.
