Looks decent at first glance. I didn't calc the IBUs and can't without the AA%. But I like the different hop times.

You're going to do a starter?

The IBUs should be 40, yeah I'll be doing a yeast starter.

I think I may have calculated the AA as 14.3 on the citra instead of 13.4, so I might be adding a small amount of bittering hops. I'd like it to come out around 40IBUs

To me that recipe is a English Pale Ale using American hops, sounds tasty.
