Default Dry Hops for Arrogant Bastard

Trying to get ideas for dry hopping my Arrogant Bastard clone. I have 2x 5g carboys finishing off now, both with the same yeast. I figured I would at least dry hop one, if not both of them with diff hops just to have something different. Of course one of them I was considering more Chinook, but I wanted to see if anyone else had suggestions for good dry hops. I've come across people using Amarillo, Centennial or Cascade, but does anyone else have any suggestions from experience with AB/Chinook.

I'm really not into the really spicy/earthy/smoky taste, and much prefer the piny/citrusy taste, so I'm wondering if dry hopping with more Chinook may even make it too harsh? Maybe I should just do a citrus hop to try and balance it?

Also I'm going to bottle 1 batch and keg the other. Any suggestions on if I should dry hop the ones that get bottled, since they will take some conditioning? Or keg the dry hopped(throw in fermenter or just directly in the keg-I have whole leaf Chinook)

Here is my dry hop schedule:
2.8oz @ 60
1.5oz @ 30
1.5oz @ 0

10g - 1.082 SG

Thanks

I like 1oz chinook and 1 oz of something citrusy. All 3 of those would work

To stay true to the recipe, I would dry hop with Chinook. But, since you have two carboys going, do one with chinook and one with your favorite citrus hop. It'll be a nice comparison.

I'd like to try Amarillo, but it seems like it'd be too soft to actually shine through.

I've used amarillo as a bittering hop and it worked very well. It has more punch than people give it credit. If you are worried about it being weak, then try simcoe. Nice citrous flavor and pretty strong.

I dry hopped my last one with 2 oz chinook it was awesome. Shortlived aroma for some reason, but while it was there it was great.
