Looks like you forgot the 1.3 multiplier in the actual ABV calculation. Should be 3.5%.

The sweetness would be due to the very low IBUs. 5.9 is a half to a third of what you should have. That's Ultra Light territory.

That looks about right for a 3 gallon batch. For 6 gallons in the primary, I used to use 7 pounds of extract, a pound or so of specialty grains and two ounce of hops.....

...... something like that anyway. It's been a while since I brewed extract style.
