I've not brewed that exact recipe but it's similar to a few ambers I've done. A little higher gravity than mine, and mine has a bitter addition and less late additions, but I'll bet it will be tasty. I love centennial amarillo in malty ambers. You'll be pleased.
As far as thermometer placement goes. I believe that it should be considered and noted in recipes. Strating with true internal temp, an attached thermometer should read a couple degrees cooler and an ambient thermometer in an enclosed chamber maybe another degree or two lower yet. I think the difference between true internal temp and ambient is effected by several things including but not limited to beer volume, OG, current krausen activity level, temp (higher temps increase activity). For me, I use ambient temp in an enclosed chamber and run it 3-4° below what I'd like the internal temp to be and I leave it there and let it do it's thing.
