Recipe adjustment- bourbon barrel brown porter with honey

Planning a brew day and need feedback, or want to share a recipe you've brewed? Post them up here (but read the sticky first :))

I would greatly appreciate some advice.

I'm brewing the HBC all-grain brown porter next week: ... -1262.html

However, I'm adjusting the recipe by adding 700 grams of honey at flame-out and I'll be ageing on bourbon barrel oak chips. I understand the honey with thin the beer slightly which is no problem, as I assume the hint of oak (I'll be erring on the side of caution in terms of the volume of oak chips) and bourbon should make up the difference in body.

My real query is, how much more bittering hops do I need to add to off-set the honey? I've got some whole leaf magnum in the freezer.
