Maybe cut the chocolate malt and shoot for something of a sessionable IPA? 47 IBU's in a 4% ABV beer will likely go along ways.

Nah, just dial back on the hops and make a nice english mild

say 1/2 oz fuggles at 45 mins and the other 1/2 at 10 mins, save the Perle for another brew. i'll stick that into beer smith for you later if you want.

Beersmith has a Mac version and a 21 day free trial.

The beer sounds like it would turn out to be a low alcohol American amber. A good lawn mower beer.
