I always add hops at 20 minutes for flavor. If you want pineapple/tropical, use Citra hops in the boil.

Where/How did you find Amarillo?

That's an insane amount of hops to dry hop with. It may end up tasting like vegetable matter, and it definitely will be very hazy.

That is going to be a hop bomb. Are you using a recipe calculator like beersmith? That will always put you in the ballpark, but once you're there you'll have to brew it several times to get it to your tastes and hammer out the kinks.

Good luck!
