You'd want to do it as a late-addition fermentable. From the FAQ late addition entry: "Use this to exclude the fermentable from the estimated boil gravity used in the calculator." This means you'll have the right gravity for bittering calculations during the boil, and the right post-boil gravity (reflecting the addition of sugar).
This will give you the IBU and ABV you are looking for. To get the mouth feel you will have to play around with mash-in temps to try get the right proportions of un-fermentable sugars out. 4.5 kg 10lb Pale 2-Row (UK) Any Mash 38 2 °L 0.45 kg 1lb Chocolate (US) Any Mash 29 350 °L 0.45 kg 1lb Caramel/Crystal 60L ...
For BJCP Info, I use BJCP 2015 Beersmith (lite or full) is a good tool (but I tend to do everything on the PC, so I do not use the app that much). The app allows for recipe formulation, logs and timers. Brew Timer is a life saver for letting you know when to do what. Easy to configure. The pre-warning function is one of the best features. Lastly, CvPad, ...
Keep in mind that Vienna malt needs to be mashed. Although if you steep it for 45-60 min. at about 150F, that will be pretty much the same as mashing. Also, amber extract will have crystal and other malts already added to it. I'd recommend using the lightest extract you can find, preferably dry, then add your own specialty malts.
I'd get rid of everything where you don't know why it's in the recipe. As a beginning brewer, I try to keep my ingredients to a bare minimum (1 lme/dme, 1 steeping grain, 1 hop, 1 yeast) when making my own recipes (ok, I made a triple-hop ale but the hops I stole from Duvel so that doesn't count). Also, I "develop" my recipes on a site with a built-in ...
On my phone the only 3 beer-related apps I have installed are: Jomebrew Beer Stats and Conversions I grabbed this primarily to convert Brix to SG because my refractometer is in Brix. The interface isn't great, but its a quick simple app for doing some basic conversions. It will also take OG and SG and give you ABV and attenuation. It also does have a timer ...
