Depends on batch and your taste. Good starting point is 1/2 tsp ground black peppercorns per gallon. Add to secondary. When you keg if it doesnt taste peppery enough for you add a little more to taste

Sorachi do have a lemony quality. Cascade seem more a little grapefruity to me but that's from limited comparisons (most of my Sorachi-hopped beers are not ready yet...but you def get a lemony note in the raw aroma). Sorachi is relatively high AA% so might be good as bitterness 'kick'.

I'm obv biased (I live in an adjacent county and work right in the middle of Indian River fruit territory) but Indian River grapefruit is da bomb.

Cluster hops tend to have lots of grapefruit flavor and aroma when used in larger concentrations, more so than centennial IMO. I have 2lbs of (leaf) cluster hops in my freezer and I don't like using them because they impart a pretty extreme grapefruit flavor in whatever beer I brew with them. Even my IIPA turned into a grapefruit bomb because of a 2oz late addition; its like Ruination but replace all other hop flavors with grapefruit.
