So any feedback is greatly appreciated.

I didn't do the formal math, but this seems like it may be a little unbalanced in BU/GU. I might take out your 30 min additions all together... or maybe shift and add them to the 15 and 5 min additions.

I'd like to see your OG and IBU... but that's a lot of hops to input.

Also, I would drop the Amber, bump up the Light, and steep some crystal, up to a lb.

re: the amber, I was thinking the same thing. I had also thought about the crystal but wasn't too sure about it.
according to beer calc. it says the OG is around 1.072, and IBU of 78.1.

A total of half an ounce of dry hops? I dry hop with a minimum of 2oz.

edit: just noticed that you are using leaf, I'm not sure what kind of difference that makes, but I have always used pellets.

I guess it's not as bitter as I thought it would be. Looks pretty good, although I agree with costa, dry hop at least 1 oz. if not more...
