First, rice hulls with that amount of Rye,

take the 60 min to .75 oz columbus, 1 oz Falconers at 30, 1 oz Cascade @ whirlpool, dry hop the Cascade & Simcoe.  The Saaz IMO will get lost.

If you really want the Saaz in there (and I do like the noble + C-hop combo myself), then you need about 2 ounces of it in the dry hop. I'm not sure what your AA% is on your hops, but I'd be shooting for about 35 IBU's from the Columbus at 60 minutes and the rest from your late adds (targeting about 65-70 IBU total). May need to adjust your quantities to get where you want to be IBU-wise.

How's your water? Make sure you have enough sulfate. At least 5 grams of gypsum if you're using RO water.

I just moved into a new place and haven't checked the water but I'm not using R/O water. What do you think about the Rye? Will there be enough flavor from it? Is it overkill with the Malt and Flaked Rye?

I guess my questions "why both?".  Not that you shouldn't, but you should be able to justify why every ingredient is there.

Well I'm trying to get a lot of rye flavor. I've never used flaked rye before and thought it might be a much more pronounced rye flavor with it. Do or do not, there is a lot of rye.

I've found that rye malt has a lot more flavor than flaked rye.  IMO, the flavor kinda maxes out at about 40% rye.  For me, it's just too intense and not well integrated wilth more than that.  Others may differ.
