Because you've got a nice malt profile there, and a low OG. I would personally let it be malt dominant instead of letting the hops try and outbid the malt.

The idea behind this beer is that if I had it to people they won't think that its a Low OG pale ale, they will think its a pale ale. My though is the addition of dry hops will add another layer to the beer.

Though you make a great point, and it's supper tasty out of the fermenter...
