My personal preference in hoppy beers is to focus on additions at the start and end of the boil. I'd probably move the 45 min addition and the 30 min additions back to 60, and the 20 min down to 0. Those mid-boil additions don't add much in a beer that is going to be saturated with hops. I'd also toss in ~8 oz of hops for the dry hop if you want a big hop aroma.

The grainbill looks fine as long as you aren't going to be entering this in competitionas a DIPA, I tend to like the ones that are light on the malts to let the hops shine, but an Imperial Red can be tasty as well.
