Feedback on Imperial Pils recipe

I had a bottle of DFH My Antonia last week and am a HUGE fan! I’m starting to realize I really enjoy pilsner’s, especially imperial’s. I want to brew one like DFH’s and found some info online about the hops and grain. The ABV is 7.5%. They use 100% pils malt and a mix of warrior, simcoe and czech saaz hops. I have magnum on hand and no warrior so I made that substitution, but I’m curious about the hop schedule. I believe DFH mixed the 3 hops together and added small amounts every few minutes during the boil making it a continually hopped imperial pils. So here’s what I came up with. I decided to go with additions every 10minutes. May stretch that out to every 5minutes if someone can give me a good reason why to go that far with it. Interested in feedback.

P.S. I know that hop schedule seems crazy, but my thought would be to add up the total amount of hops. Grind and mix them all together and then measure out 1/2oz for each addition.
