NB Rebel Rye kit sans whiskey and oak

would you chnage anything with this kit of you were going to brew it without the whiskey or oak? I brewed it a few weeks back and came in under gravity by about 4 points. tastes a bit thin. I was wondering if I should dry hop it with a little something and just serve it as a porter and then try again with the whiskey, etc at another time. It tasted great and I’m a big fan of edmund fitzgerald, I know they are different portersm but both use cascade as a late addition. Just looking for some ideas on whether to just move forwand with the recipe as is or is this considered a decent stand alone porter…here’s the NB recipe so no one has to look it up:
