Sounds like a recipe for AIPA to me :  2 Row + the 5 oz of C60.  Bitter with Columbus or Chinook, a blend of Rakau, Centennial, Amarillo and Columbus late. Plenty of gypsum in the mash. Obviously APA is an option too.

Do you think adding the honey malt too would be odd tasting?

I avoid it in IPA - I feel sweetness and high hopping levels clash, and honey malt (not surprisingly) has a sweet character. If it sounds good to you, go for it.

What kid of yeast choices? Any dark grains or is that what you have to work with?

The only thing I see comming out of this is a Pale Ale or IPA of some sorts. There's not a lot of Munich or Crystal to really drive the beer into anthing else. I thought maybe an Amber Ale if you want to go that route but not with only a couple oz of Munich and Crystal 60.

I asked about yeast because if you brew any Belgians, you could have some other options.

Use up some 2 row, throw the Munich and C-60 in there with a .25 lb of the Wheat and throw some hops in the boil. If you wanted to try some Honey Malt, go for it, but I wouldn't use more that .25 lb and in that case I would drop the Wheat. But there's not much there to go on besides that. Lots of nice hop to pick from!
