I am a big proponent of using a single bittering charge at 60 (adjust for IBUs) and then saving flavor hops til about 20-15 min range. I think you should consider dropping the simcoe til more at the end of the boil. Also I have recently been adding a lot of flavor hops at flame out and then slowly stirring the wort for about 10 minutes to create a whirlpool prior to chilling. This really brings out that hoppy flavor.

This is a quite a high OG, imperial IPA i assume? Make sure you have a lot of healthy yeast and make a starter
