Need advice on building an interior door

I was trying to design a interior passage door for our laundry room.  Dimensions: Thickness is 1 and 3/8". Width is 32".  Height is 79".   I've attached a rough sketch.  I was thinking of building it from 2x4's for the rails and stiles.  These would be planed down.  For the panels either MDF or plywood. The 2x4's would be attached to each other with pocket holes.   Question:Is the a way to use the Kreg jig to attach the rails and stiles to the panels?…See More

(1)How many screws to use on each end?  One of the others had a pictures with 8 or 9. (2)Does she mean 2 1/2 in long flat head…See More
