I would try another 0.5 oz of Hallertau or Crystal or make it a full oz. of Mt. Hood. That should give it some more flavor. Right now it sound a little light. But, it all depends on your taste. That's who you are breing for-right! Don't forget to add the honey at flame out!!!
Looks like you did a good job. Looks flavorful and crisp. The honey should give it a nice dry note. Tell us how it turns out.

After you turn the heat off. Right after the boil. That way it is still hot enough to disolve the honey but will not destroy its delicate charm.
