Mash @ 154F using 1 qt/lb water to grain ratio for 60 mins.
I'm only counting the bittering hops in the IBU count. I also use the bittering ratio instead of straight IBUs, and for this beer I aim for 0.55-0.60 GU/BU (again, only the bittering hops). I did this beer grain to glass in 9 days and it came out excellently.
One note: I wanted a more present hop aroma/flavour than I got - I got none with the above recipe, so you might be able to drop the late hops altogether and save some money. Another HBT member has made this since I did the first batch and he doubled the late hops, only to report that the hops still are not very noticeable. I might try a light dry hop on one keg of this next time. I am trying to emulate a beer I had while in England, and the light floral, earthy Kent Goldings hops were so nice in that beer, but in no way over powering.
