On your Black IPA -- it looks fantastic; but if I convert it to extract, what should I use?

Ah, I'm just in the middle of brewing it right now, just waiting on the wort coming up to the boil! Changed it up a bit as well earlier on and added in some cascade into the mix and went a bit madder with the rest of the hops, but I’ve found the beers I’ve been brewing recently aren’t hoppy enough and I’m trying something different this time. I've never done extract brewing but converting it to extract in Beersmith seems to suggest 4.13Kg of Pale Liquid extract then use the chocolate, crystal and carafa II as specialist malts and steep them in some way. To be honest I've been brewing all grain for a long time but this is the first time I've done a black IPA so I’ve no idea what it will turn out like, it’s a bit of an experimental brew. I’ll update it in few weeks once fermentation is finished.
