That's a awful lot of crystal malt at 2 1/4 lbs. Carapils isn't necessary, just mash higer if you want more body, but I doubt you'd need it. I'd cut both crystal malt to half a pound each.

I'd ditch the carapils and light crystal, or at least only use a pound total including the crystal 60L. Maybe .5 pound 60L and .5 pound 20L.

I'd consider leaving out the corn sugar (or is for priming?) since it's only 4 ounces and insignificant.

I'm not sure what your efficiency is, but it my system I'd get a fairly high OG with that much grain, so I'd increase the bittering hops to 1 ounce, possibly more. Actually, I'd rearrange the hopping since .25 ounce in one place and 2 ounces in another is sort of strange to me. I'd do this:

1.25 oz. Centennial (60min.) (maybe even more, depending on the probable OG of this beer, and the IBUs)

1.0 oz. Centennial (15min.)
1 oz. Amarillo * (10min.)
1.0 oz. Centennial (5 min.)
1 oz. Amarillo. **(0 min.)
1.0 oz. Centennial (dry)
1 oz amarillo (dry)
