Welcome! Your pale ale looks good.

I was in Sweden and Denmark last summer for six weeks, it was extraordinary.

I like your choice of Hops. It is hard for me to tell about the rest as it is all in metric.

Enjoy!

23 C = 74 F. That seems high. Try an keep it below 70 F (21 C).

If you drop the Perle in the dry hop, you will have something close to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
