3.5oz.   Simcoe 1min.
3.6oz.   Amarillo 1 min.

I maybe and probably am wrong, but you may want to look at the timing of these additions.  It may be a whirlpool addition at the brewery so you may want to consider moving them back or steeping them after flameout before chilling for 20 minutes or so.  Just a thought.  Curious what the forum has to say.

that's a good point Ryan N - theres a lot of hop flavor in the Sublime, and I can't imagine that you'd get all that much from that schedule without a whirlpool (which they apparently do for a an hour?).

With current outdoor temperatures I think they would see temperatures above 160 during chilling for at least 10 minutes, but maybe moving them back or splitting them into 2 additions is a good idea.  I would be using all pellet hops if that makes any difference.

I also didn't list and dry hopping but would be doing that for sure, just haven't worked out what that would be.

I have a chest for crashing to remove my dry hops.

Thanks
