It should look something like this
OG 1.056
FG 1.015
ABV 5.4%
IBU around 30
Seems like it will be a well balanced brew with a unique flavor. should be really good

I was thinking of upping the flakes wheat to 1lb with .5lb oats... Would I need a little more 2 row or a little Belgian pils?

i think the only thing that would do is give it maybe a little more body or mouthfeel, if you did not add anything but the addition of oats. but let me remind you, i'm fairly new. maybe some of the veterans will chime in and give you some better advice.
