Default Merdian/citra hopped IPA recipy critique

I have some meridian hops that i have been itching to use in a wheat based IPA. I thought i would pair them up with some citra and hop burst em. I was wondering if my grain bill needs some tweaking. Do you think it need some crystal or something along thou's line to darken/fortify. Is it to much wheat

What is the intention of the flaked and torrified wheat?

I would think it would also provide body and head retention. I'm interested in using wheat in my next IPA for body without sweetness like Crystal Malt. I always use 8oz of C-80 in my IPA's for color and body with 2-row as the base grain.

That is correct. I'm thinking a small amount of dark wheat to give it some color

what if you roasted some of the wheat at 350 for about 15 minutes on a cookie tray? I have heard you can make Victory Malt by doing that with 2-row. It takes the color from 2 SRM to 25 SRM.
