Like everyone else said its for your hot break. You have seven gallons to make sure you will have 5 gallons at the end of the boil. extract is boiled before they package it so the hot break is done for you for the most part. ( you still get a little foam with extract but not much.)

Wheat (blue star) - (5gal)
3.3 lb german wheat malt
5.5 lb pale 2-row malt
0.5 lb german cara-pils (dextrin)
Single mash for 60 min. at 154F (4.66gal)
Sparge water (15min) at 170F (3.5 gal)
(8.16gal - 1.16gal water retension) = 7gal

boil time 90 min
0.58oz Cascade AA 5.7% (60min)
1.0oz Cascade AA 5.7% (15min)
0.5oz Cascade AA 5.7% (0min)

Yeast: White labs WLP001

Ferment at 70F

That's what I brewed yesterday except I used a bit less water and added the bittering hops 10min after the hot break.
Got around 5.2gal - OG 1.055 (recipe says OG 1.046, guess it's b/c I used about 1l less water and the efficieny was about 80% :-))
I also used Cascade AA 6.4% that means the IBU turned out to be 26 instead of 18 as it says the original recipe. Will see how it turns out. I can hear the bubbles while I write this..what a lovely sound.

Yeah, there's nothing in your recipe that would require a 90 minute boil, so they were likely giving a timeframe to include hot break.
