With a lb. of caramalt, I'd cut back on the crystal.  Or vice versa.

Thanks for the feedback.  Would it be too sweet or just off setting with the receipe as is.

If the hops you intend to use are average AA, I think it would be far too sweet.  If you want to use that amount of cara malts, you might consider increasing the hops to balance.  Or brew it as is, assess it, and make any changes you want to in the next batch.
