Default Hows this look?

I'm looking to make a simple pale ale. How does this recipe look to everyone? Anything you would change?

Hops I have on hand: Citra, Cascade, Columbus, Nugget, Simcoe (all pellets)

I just made a very hoppy beer using columbus, nugget and cascade (140ish IBU's) and now I'm looking to make a simple pale ale. My initial thought was heavy on the cascades and add either citra or simcoe. I settled on citra for no good reason, I have never used either so any input is welcome. This is getting brewed tomorrow sometime. Thanks for the suggestions!

can move those cascade hops from bittering to a dryhop or late addition.
and replace the bittering hops with some of the nugget you have on hand.

cascade can be used as bittering, but its much better as an addition used in the last 15 minutes or as a dryhop.
that would add a lil more ZAP to the beer as you're obviously a hophead

and FYI, excellent hops selection you have, keep it going

And this beer looks awesome. I'm a hop-head too so I get excited when I see all those additions!
