No it's not over kill I have done commercial insulation for over 20 years and this is average in my area.

What's above it for insulation? Is there a flat roof?
Your in heating zone 5 so there should be between R-49 and R-60.
6" is only about R-19.

Depends on what the roof and insulation assembly is in that as well.
