Default Need advice/input on a Wheat Ale recipe

I also posted this in the Extract Brewing forum. But I thought I'd give it a shot here too.

Here's a recipe I want to try. Any advice/input about changing amounts is fine with me. I've only been brewing for a little while and this will be my first extract without following a recipe, I've only ever deviated a little on recipes that i've followed. It's just based on others I have seen.

This is supposed to be for a 23 L batch, so approx 6 gal.

Here it is:

-4.4 lbs Light LME
-1 lb Weizen (60% wheat/40% barley)
-1 lb Canadian 2 Row (steep until water is 160 degrees)
-1 lb Flaked Barley (steep until water is 160 degrees)
-1 oz East Kent Goldings hops 60 min
-1 oz Saaz (or should I us Citra?) 10 min
-2 oz orange peel
-1 oz clementine peel
-Safbrew WB-06

I would add the orange & clementine at the end of the boil to just draw a bit of the flavour and to kill any nasties that may be there.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I'd swap the flaked barley for flaked wheat and the 2 row for white or flaked wheat . Also maybe wheat extract? And don't go too big on the ibu.
