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.
Thanks, this helps alot.

You had me at Two Hearted Ale Clone.
