Shooting for a smooth IPA with lots of flavor and aromoa. Keeping the grain bill simple, the hops are the star of this show. Looking for feeback on the recipe.

Batch size: 5 ga

Grain bill:
13 lbs Pale
6oz amber

Hops: (magnum and FF are pellet, citra is whole)
.75oz magnum @ 60
.5oz FF @ 10
.5oz Citra @ 10
1.0oz FF @ flameout
1.0oz citra @ flameout
1.0oz FF after whirlpool (before immersion chill)
1.0oz citra after whilrpool (before immersion chill)
1.0oz FF dry hop in secondary
1.5oz citra dry hop in secondary

Yeast: either WL CaliV or WY1272

Single infusion Mash:
60 min @ 152

*since I am whirlpooling and resting for 20mins I read that what would normally be the flameout addition should be moved back to right before chilling.

What's your OG? Maybe add a bit of wheat and corn sugar. Go with CaliV.

I see no need in doing both flameout and warm whirlpool steep, but there's no harm in it either.

FYI - This is going to be quite fruity/tropical, and almost juice-like.

I think you should up the magnum to 1oz. The magnum is such a smooth bittering hop that you almost have to overshoot your intended IBU or it will seem to mellow.

Is the pale 2-row? Is the amber DME or LME or what?

Thanks

This was an amazing IPA. Turned out exactly like I wanted; smooth with a big time hop aroma and flavor. I will make this again for sure.
