WPG is just watt/gallons.

Let see, 1 British gallon = 1.032 US gallon so therefore there is hardly any difference.

We will just call your tank 47 US gallons. 110W/47gallons = 2.34WPG

I would say with all those bulbs you should be able to grow any plant from low to high light. You might not be able to grow very high light demanding plants but really there I don't think there are many species that won't do ok in that light.
