What type of beer are you trying to make, and what batch size are you trying to make?

If that's an American pale ale, it is too much crystal 60L malt. I'd cut that to no more than a pound. If it's supposed to be an IPA, I'd half the 60L.

I don't know what LDE is, but I assume it's a dry extract? That would be fine.

I'd change the hopping. The recipe as written will be very bitter (like bitter enough to remove the enamel off your teeth), but with little hops flavor or aroma. I'd change that up like this:

1oz Columbus 60 minutes
1 oz citra 15 minutes
1 oz citra 5 minutes
1 oz citra flame out
dryhop 2 ounces citra for 5-7 days.

+1 good advice.

Assuming LDE = DME you have a 1.075+ beer there. An IPA. You want little crystal (I'd suggest only using 0.5 lbs), and you want it to dry out (I'd suggest replacing a pound of the DME with 1 lb of table sugar)

Save some citra from your 30 minute addition for a dry hop. What IBU are you calculating? It seems like it will be really high. Not a bad thing, but I'd go for more aroma hops.

Actually, I would pretty much do what yooper said

Sounds fine for a 1.075+ IPA.
