Default Help with PM recipe inspired by Union Jack IPA

I want to brew this weekend and I still haven't figured out exactly what I want to brew

I had a Union Jack the other day for the first time and it was a pretty decent beer. The two things that stand out with this beer are the bright golden/yellow color and the Amarillo hop aroma.

I've only had the beer once so I don't think I have enough tasting experience to clone, but here's my big question: Is it possible to get that bright, light color by doing a PM?

Here's the start of a recipe I'm thinking of:

5 Gallon Batch:

New Recipe (American IPA)

Original Gravity (OG): 1.082 (P): 19.8
Final Gravity (FG): 1.021 (P): 5.3
Alcohol (ABV): 8.06 %
Colour (SRM): 9.5 (EBC): 18.7
Bitterness (IBU): 86.0 (Average)

65.12% Dry Malt Extract - Light
18.6% Pale Malt
16.28% Crystal 10

0.2 oz/Gal Warrior (15.8% Alpha) @ 60 Minutes (Boil)
0.2 oz/Gal Amarillo (8.6% Alpha) @ 30 Minutes (Boil)
0.2 oz/Gal Amarillo (8.6% Alpha) @ 1 Minutes (Boil)

Single step Infusion at 151F for 60 Minutes. Boil for 60 Minutes

Fermented at 65F with

Recipe Generated with BrewMate

Brewmate says this recipe should be very light, however it only has options for Light/Amber/Dark malt extract, not Extra Light. I'm also thinking about going with a British Ale strain, like 1098 to keep some more malty flavor. I understand that the original Firestone Union Jack has a huge and complex hop bill, but I'm trying to keep this one a little simpler for my first recipe attempt.

This is my first crack at building my own recipe - go easy on me!!

needs much more late hops and I'd move that 30min add later for more flavor/aroma
