Trying to make it easy for him to pick up the ingredients, and trying to keep the cost down.

I've never brewed a 100% original recipe before, so I'm looking for some validation.

The SG is rather high (not a bad thing) and you will have a pretty malty, full bodied beer. A pound of Cry20L will definitely leave some sweetness in the beer. I would add some more hops if I were you to balance it out a bit - maybe 70 IBUs?
