Default IPA/APA Hop Schedule Advice--malt bill from Zombie Dust clone

I plan on brewing later today or tomorrow morning using mostly leftover grains from Skeezerpleezer's Zombie Dust extract clone.

The malt bill looks like this:
6.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 70.6 %
1.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 11.8 %
0.50 lb Carafoam (2.0 SRM) Grain 5.9 %
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 5.9 %
0.50 lb Belgian Aromatic (LHBS doesn't carry Melanoidin, subbed this)
Fermenting with S04 (love that flocculation)

Right now here are the hops I have:
8 oz Amarillo pellets
1 oz Citra pellets
3 oz Centennial 2 oz leaf, 1 oz pellets
4 oz Cascade leafs
1/2 oz Warrior pellets
1 oz Magnum pellets
5 oz Falconer's Flight 7C's pellets

I'll be doing a full boil and trying to get nice smooth bitterness with a big hop punch. Here is what I'm thinking so far:

FWH: 1 oz Magnum (IBUs calculated at 20 mins for perceived bitterness)
15 min 1 oz 7C's
10 min 1 oz 7C's
5 min 1 oz 7C's
1 min 1 oz 7C's
dry hop 3oz total--1 oz Centennial leaf, 1 oz Citra, 1 oz Amarillo

Beersmith puts the IBUs at 61, but I hoped using FWH on the Magnum would smooth it out.

I've never really made my own recipe so any advice is greatly appreciated!

Since you will retain some flavor and aroma from the FWH, I would lean towards using some amarillo, citra, or centennial there.

Good idea. I've used FWH before, but usually the whole recipe is heavily hopped so I didn't really know what kind of flavor it would retain.

What about the dry hop cominbation? Does that sound right?

Dryhop sounds great. Some of my favorites! How'd you like the Zombie Dust?

I messed up a bit on the first ZD clone, but it's starting to taste really good after a month in bottles. I just bottled another 5 gallons of it today (that I didn't screw up) and it was my first full-volume boil. It smelled absolutely fantastic!

I took a trip up to Three Floyds a few weeks back and still have 2 more cases of the real Zombie Dust left. It's just too bad they have a 2 case per person limit.

Reviving my dead post for anyone interested, ended up adding .25 lbs of Special B, and dry hopped 1 oz Citra, 1 oz Amarillo, 1 oz 7Cs.

I have to say, this is by far the best pale ale I've ever brewed... It's like a cross between Zombie Dust and Alpha King, both of which I adore.
