figure your est OG with all the grains you have figure the IBU you would like and just brew it. It all looks like a brown ale to me not sure about the hops but keep your IBU in the 45 range and call it a strange brew. you just never know...
good luck

p.s. just keep it clean, take good notes, ferment on temp and you cant go wrong!

This sounds like a good idea to me also. It looks like it would be somewhere in the Brown Ale or Porter category. Dropping some of the dark malts and increasing the hops might give you a dark IPA. My IPAs tend to be on the brown side.
I think if you keep the malts and hops in a reasonable balance and watch your technique you will produce a good beer.

Throw it all in the MLT, call it a dark brown. 1-1.5 oz of fuggles @ 60 min and maybe a 30 min addition and you should be set.
