Critique this radical beer recipe

Ok, I’m wanting to do a radical brew. What I had in mind was a continuously hopped wheat beer. I initially wanted some Falconer’s Flight but they are sold out on NB,(tho I may find them elsewhere)
but I have changed to Falconer’s 7 C’s. After reading some advice on IPA hopping, I question my 60, 45, and 30 minute hop additions. Maybe 1 6o minute and then some heavier late additions, 15 minutes and down to 1 minute.

Like I said, I want to do a heavily hopped wheat beer. Below is the recipe. Tell me where I’m goofing it up.

5 lbs rahr white wheat malt
5 lbs 2 row pale malt

1/3 oz falconers 7 c’s 60 mins

1/3 oz falconers 7 c’s 45 Mins

1/3 oz falconers 7 c’s 30 mins

1/3 oz falconers 7 c’s 15 Mins

1/3 falconers 7 c’s 10 Mins

1/3 falconers 7 c’s 5 Mins

1 oz falconers 7 c’s 1 Mins

us05 dry yeast

I think you will want at least some crystal malt in the grain bill.

Also, I personnaly would be using more then 3 oz in an IPA.

I would suggest something along these lines.

5 Lbs. 2-Row Malt
4 Lbs. White Wheat Malt
0.75 Lbs Crystal 40L
0.25 Lbs Crystal 60L
Mash @ 151 for 60 Minutes

1 oz. Flaconer’s 7C @ 60
1 oz. Flaconer’s 7C @ 15
1 oz. Flaconer’s 7C @ 7
1 oz. Flaconer’s 7C @ 1
1 oz. Flaconer’s 7C @ Dry Hop

Well it’s not necessarily an IPA. It’s an over hopped Wheat beer. But I like your input. And I will probably put it to the test. Thanks. I have 2 kegs, one is empty, but I have a beer in the fermentor about to take it’s place. So this may work out in a week or two.
