If it was mine, i would drop the pilsner malt.
As far as the hops go i would move the 45 min addition up to 5 min and move the 30 min up to 15 min or less.

You think a whole pound of the caramel 20?

I personally would not use more that 12oz of c20. You could add 4oz of honey malt for a little more sweetness if that's what your looking for.

Personally, I like dry over-the-top hoppy IPAs.

Something like

Base malt
1/2 lb crystal
1oz high AA hop for bittering
3-4oz hops in the 15-0 minute range
3-4 oz dry hop

The "flavor" comes from the late additions and you only have 1 oz of hops in that range.
