I'm a big fan of Nelson, but I only use it in a single hop IPA.  Not a big fan of Vienna.  Leaves a sort of grittiness to me.  Try leaving out the Chinnook

I like Chinook as a bittering hop. It has more bite than the low cohumulone hops.

I've done a Nelson only IPA.  Good bitterness, not overpowering.  Chinook has it's place in a C-hop beer.  Just think it trumps the Nelson.
