So I just started brewing, this is actually my second batch, but i've done some research and developed this recipe for a Belgian style IPA. Any critiques or comments would be greatly appreciated. I just brewed it this morning but I could always make changes for future brews.

Belgian IPA

OG: 1.070
FG: 1.018
IBU: 92

Grain Bill:
6.6 lbs Light LME
1 lb CaraVienne 20L
1 lb Pilsen (2 Row)
8 oz Aromatic malt
6 oz White Wheat Malt

1 oz Chinook @ 60 min
.5 oz Centennial @ 30 min
.5 oz Chinook @ 30 min
.5 oz Centennial @ 10 min
.5 oz Chinook @ 10 min
2 oz Amarillo @ 5 min
1 oz Centennial - Dryhop
2 oz Amarillo - Dryhop

Wyeast 3522 (Belgian Ardennes)

Other Additions:
1 lb Candi Sugar (Clear)
1 Whirlfloc Tablet

I steeped the grains at 154F for 60 minutes and then rinsed with water that was 170F. I'm assuming that's a partial mash because my gravity came out a bit higher than I expected. Also I made a 1L starter 2 days ago and pitched the entire thing in after cooling and aerating the wort. Im not too sure about the hop selection for dry hopping yet. There are probably other possibilites that would make a nice combination. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.
