Seems like a lot of crystal for keeping it light and dry. Maybe bump the total crystal malt to 2lbs total, I would think with the carared giving it some body (and flavor), you wouldn't need the extra carapils for more body.

Looks tasty. Id (personally) shoot for a little higher mash temp, maybe 150, because I find mashing that low makes my beer very anemic. Also, maybe back off a little bit on the carapils, 1lb should do the trick. Cheers!
