Yes, it should be fine.  I use IMAP daily with a similar amount of
mail, with no problems.  IMAP is designed for exactly this, and only
message headers are downloaded until you click on a message to view
the full content.

IMAP is ideal for people who move to different machines regularly. 
All of your email is available to any machine with an internet
connection.  However, this may also be a serious problem if your
client is on the road without an internet connection, as he won't be
able to access much more than the cached message headers.

Yes, it's ideal for IMAP.
