So, I'm setting up to go full bore into my commercial minimums while making sure to check off all the boxes on my Instrument required hours. Due to old hours from over 20 years ago, I'm currently sitting at 90 hours TT, and 15 hours PIC. Once I cross the 200 hr threshold I hope to knock out my Instrument, Multi-Engine and Commercial in rapid succession.
Congrats, sounds like a plan. Might consider doing the IR sooner, so you can maybe get some actual (but be wary of convective stuff in the mid-atlantic region).

Avoid the security sensitive airspace around the capital, or make darn sure you do it right. That kind of trouble will derail your commercial career.
