1) Where are you getting your IBUs from? I only see the one addition of Styrian
2) What are your plans on fermentation temps? Different temps at different stages of fermentation are really important for all Belgian beers, but especially dubbels. I would recommend pitching at ~68 and letting it rise naturally to the high 70s

As far as temps go, that will not be hard to do, I live in az, and a couple days ago we had some 88-90 days. My rhermostat stays at 78. The IBU's are calculated from Beersmith, with Late Addition.
