Your really asking the wrong guy that question lol, I like malty, creamy, low hop beers.
I did help a friend make a coffee IPA recipe, its hoppy but drinkable (for my taste) he said it needed more hops, it had 3 oz of hops total in the recipe for a 5 gal batch.
If you like super hoppy then try it the way it is, if not maybe cut out 1/2 of the additions and it will still be hoppy.
Also something to consider is that every hop and batch of hops for that matter have different AA values that will change the hop bitterness of the recipe.
Sorry Im not more help !
Maybe someone with lots of IPA experience can jump in and help better than I can.
