It looks fine to me up until the dry hopping.  For a big IPA (or any IPA for that matter)  I use a minimum of 1 oz. per gallon.

I'd probably swap out the CaraPils for sugar to help dry it out a bit. Hop quantities are kind of funky - where did you get them from?

Personally, I'd move your 10 & 15 minute additions to the whirlpool, and double your dry hop, but add another hop variety. In a DIPA I use 3-5 hop varieties in the late and dry hop additions to increase the complexity of the hop character a bit.

Speaking of drying it out, isn't that mash temp a bit high for a DIPA? I think you would want more around 148-150 for some more dryness, but I've only made 1 DIPA, and it was from a kit: I just blindly followed the directions

Yeah, it is. I mash IIPA @ 149F/90 mins aside from using a lb of sugar. Way too many sweet IIPAs out there IMO.

Also may want to consider a normal 60 minute bittering charge instead of or in addition to your FWH to get some punch out of it.
