I brewed up a 3 Floyds clone of Zombie Dust that used 9 oz of citra hops (3 oz Dry hop) but its not that bitter really....citra is a great hop variety and getting somewhat harder to find. give it time to ferment and carb up and the bitterness should subside.

This. I about choked when I took a sip of my Pliny clone right out of the kettle.

I just had my first bottle of an all-Citra IPA I did about two months ago. The hop schedule looked pretty similar to yours and it turned out great. Yours will be fine after fermentation, bottling and carbing. Cheers!
