I have had beer brewed with Nelson hops. EFFING GOOD.
When you say %, do you mean IBUs? amount of hops? Alcohol? Centennial usually runs in the 9-11% AA ranges so I'm guessing you are getting around 100 IBUs which puts you more in the Imperial range. Is that what you are going for? What is your grain bill like?

I've done a nice single IPA with all Centennial (it was a 2 Hearted Ale Clone). Off the top of my head it was something like 5 oz all together; an ounce at 60, 45, 20, flame out, and dry hop. It ends up being around 60 IBUs with a OG around 1.060. Actually won a couple awards with that beer.

Centennial is one of my favorite hops, but if you want to get a wider array of flavors, you might throw in something else as well. If your going for the heavy floral/citrus Pacific NW feel, any of the C hops would be fine (Chinook, Cascade, Challenger). I'm also a big fan of Amarillo.
