I guess I've never used Rye or Wheat in an IPA, I also usually throw a little crystal in there, 60-120...however I'm feeling on that day. Should turn out good though. Hopefully Yooper will chime in here in a bit to provide you some truly useful advise/critique.

It's somewhat unusual. I could do without the honey malt myself, but it's not a big amount. The wheat will help head retention. I'm not sure if you have not enough rye if you want any.

What kind of yeast? My guess would have been to use some irish moss to help with clarity? Im kind of just guessing but seems it might be hazy?Not a bad thing.Just suggesting what you may have,ive had a lot clear up over a few months. I may be gettin some rye that a guy is growing this year, never used it and am going to try to malt it maybe make a cane and ebel clone or something.
Your recipe looks good not shure how many ibu's you got though, your flavoring additions may cover up your grain taste for awile until it mellows out,if they last more than a few months for you. I think you will like those hop flavors though,they are some of my favorites.

dumped it on a SafAle05 yeast cake I had from a white beer I just made. It is raging right now with a ton of yeasties being blown through the blowoff tube.
