I finally brewed this today after a few alterations. I ended up doing away with the honey and bumping the wheat to 7 lb and the barley to 6 lb. I changed up the hops as well. Warrior and Galaxy (0.5 oz each) for bittering and flavor, Sorachi Ace for aroma and dry hop (1 oz each). Fermenting with Safale US-05 so American Wheat rather than Hefeweissen. I used the Brew in a Bag approach, which I have for my last 3 brews with good results. I missed my targets on all but I really missed them on this. 1.048 instead of 1.063. I expected some problem since I used too much water, but my efficiency was only 65%. Not good. I still should end up with just under 5% ABV so not bad but bothersome. Need to work on that.

Just tried my Sorachi Ace American Wheat tonight. It pours cloudy golden with a 1 inch white head. Nose is herbal and lemon. Flavor is dry herbal and tart. Very distinctive. Very drinkable. Haven't quite adjusted to the herbal character. My wife said it tastes like dill! I think it does taste like dill smells. Is that the Sorachi Ace hop? Anyone used this one before?

I brewed a very similar beer, tried to get close to Southern Tier's HopSun. Wish I would have read this thread, I dry hopped with wet Citra and its INTENSE! Citra is dangerous!
