Also if you have thoughts in the yeast to use that would be great.

I never bother with multiple bittering hops, just pick one. Also I like my PA's to be more simple with no more than 2 kinds of hops. I'd take what you are doing and bump it up to an IPA, which isn't far to go as you are bumping at the edge. I use Safale S-05 for IPA's or PA's.

15% crystal malts might be pushing it. Why the C-pils? The C-20 will pretty much do the same thing. I'm not a fan of Cascade for bittering but YMMV. Other than that the hop schedule looks good...

I guess I disagree, I'm a kitchen sink, hop layer kind of guy. Love the complexity it brings.
