This is basically what I have been doing. I do IIFYM, while avoiding food that would traditionally be called 'junk'. I went from 250 (yikes!) to 216, as of today, and am slowly making my way down to at least 200. But seeing Th3pwnishers picture makes me think I'll go more for 190.
My strength has suffered a little. Front squat is down 15lbs, bench is down 25. I don't deadlift or back squat. 'Accessory work', did also go down e.g. DB rows went down about 5lbs and a rep. But I look and feel so, so much better. I'm also positive that once I switch gears to maintaining, my strength will return & then some.
OP, you should be able to get to below 220 without much trouble. You're still relatively new, given your strength levels, so you may even gain strength along the way. I was sitting at 1530 gym total before cutting.
