Default Pale Ale Critique

I've been developing a house pale ale over the last couple of months, and this is the iteration that my partner, friends, and I like best. Thoughts?

Amounts are for 5.5 gallons.

OG: 1.054
FG: 1.014
ABV: 5.4%
IBU: 41 (Tinseth)
Calculated Efficiency: 77%

88% Rahr 2-row (11lbs)
6% Caramel 60 (12oz)
6% Carapils (12oz)

18 IBU Pearle 8% AA FWH (1oz)
8 IBU Cascade 6% AA 10min (1oz)
11 IBU Citra 13% AA 6min (1oz)
5 IBU Cascade 6% AA 6min (1oz)

Dry hop: Cascade, 1oz

Yeast: WYeast 1007 British Ale

Mash at 152 for 1 hour.
Boil time is 60 minutes.

Ferment at 66 degrees F for 10 days, transfer to secondary and add dry hops. Over 5 days, drop the temperature to 34 and allow to rest for 14 days total of dry hop contact time.

Rack to a keg and add prepared gelatin for fining. Carbonate to 2.4 volumes.

End up with this:

Looks good, nice color! I think the cascade and citra are a good choice!
