They do a great job giving you most all the info you need right on the website:

http://www.troegs.com/beers_sunshine.htm

Sunshine Pils®
Alcohol by Volume: 5.3%
Hop Bitterness (IBU's) : 45
Color (SRM) : Straw/ Golden
Availability: Seasonal
Malts: Pilsner, Crystal
Hops: Saaz, Mitt. Hallertau
Yeast: Lager

TASTING NOTES
Hop fans rejoice! Sunshine Pils combines the crisp taste of European style pilsners with a kicked-up hop character to create a balanced, refreshing seasonal beer. Golden in color with a fluffy white head, Sunshine Pils is the perfect beer for Summer.


I have a christmas brew in the works based off their Mad Elf info from the site.

What type of liquid yeast would be best for this recipe?
And would dry hopping be necessary?

Any thoughts on what liquid yeast would be best? I was planning on getting the ingredients today.

An even bigger bump I want to attempt a clone next year, given the lager yeast, right now I am a super noob, and want to know whether you brew this as a lager or could you attempt as a ale?
