Hey everyone. I've been playing around with Beer calculus and came up with this potential recipe for sort of an Imperial version of Magic Hat's Encore IPA...please be gentle, it's my first time

Batch size: 5.0 gallons

dry hop 7 days 1.0 Amarillo pellet 7.0
dry hop 7 days 1.0 Simcoe pellet 13.0

figuring on a 75% efficiency, which I think I could pull off with BIAB.
Now for the questions:
For yeast, could I just double pitch a dry yeast like Nottingham, or do I have to go the liquid route?
Is this feasible for a first time all grain BIAB brew?
Should I dryhop a little heavier? I likadahops
Thanks for the help, sorry if it's a little confusing!
