That's pretty much the best bang for buck recommendation. Swap for a sigma 10-20 if money is tight.

I would replace the 10-22mm with either a 17-5x f/2.8 or the EFS 15-85mm. An ultra-wide is more of a specialty lens for landscape, IMO. It can be useful at times, but you'll probably get more use out of something with more reach for general landscape work. The 10-22mm is one of my least used lenses.

That would I do when I am in your shoes.

If you are on a Budget:
Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 (Not the f3.5 version)
Keep your 18-55
Get the 70-200 f4 (non IS) or get the 70-300 IS USM

If you have the money
Tokina 11-16 f2.8
Canon 17-55 f2.8
Canon 70-300L

Canon 16-35L (Landscape) I know everyone is going to suggest a different lens for wide angle, but if you choose sharpness over range, this is the way to go.
Canon 50/1.4 (Portraits and whatever else, the lens is just way too much fun to walk around with)
Canon 70-200 F4L (IS recommended)

Go and check out sample threads for those lenses and they will make up your mind automatically. Canon 70-200 F2.8 is nice to have but a brick to carry everyday. If weight don't bother you and you shoot in low light, go for it. I am happy with 70-200 F4.

Meh....better choices for the money on a crop camera.

I'd go with the 10-22 for wide angle - very sharp across the frame and very resistant to flare...both good qualities for landscape. There are cheaper or faster options out there but for your intended use, the 10-22 can't be beat.

Standard - you said you'd be keeping the 18-55 so just keep using it as your standard lens. If you can upgrade in the future, check out the 15-85. It's a great lens due to flexibility, IS, IQ. Although about on par with the 17-55 for IQ, I feel like 2.8 zooms are wasted on crop for the most part. To get any really nice background seperation you need faster primes and outside of the constant f2.8, the other benefits of the 15-85 outweigh anything the flare prone 17-55 has to offer.

Telephoto - the 100-400 offers a ton of reach and pretty good IQ - this would probably be my choice. Others to consider based on budget/your needs would be the 70-200 2.8 II or f4 IS, 70-300L or Tamron 70-300 VC USD for the budget choice.
