Looks good, but maybe you want to go with 2 lbs. of Pale Malt Extract instead of the Dry Wheat extract. Might taste a little too wheaty. Woudn't be a bad thing, if that is what you want. Also, take only the zest of maybe 2 oranges and add at the time you indicated, or even at flameout. Add the honey when you add the cold water, so you keep the delicate aromatics of the honey.

Looks good!
