When or will they get them in anytime soon? You can try Amarillo or Centennial but there is really no close substitute for aroma. I would go for Amarillo over Cent or a combo of both. I'm not a big citrus hop head so hopefully someone else can comment on a better sub than mine.

shall i use 2x the amount of cascade for the centennial that is mentioned in the recipe?
and how does the dryhopping work?do i let the beer ferment out completely and then add the hops?or do i add them before its finished.do i have to treat the hops for dryhopping a certain way so that they dont contaminate the beer?

You want to figure out the alpha acid of the hops they were using, or the IBUs you should be expecting from the hop additions, and use a calculator to figure out how much of the centennial you will need to use to get a similar IBU. Finishing hops and dry hops won't matter as much.

As for the dry hops, I would wait until its almost done before adding, it really doesn't matter at what point, just as long as you time it to where you will be bottling/kegging by the time they have been in there for 7-10 days. You don't want the hops to be in there for more than 2 weeks, so just time around that. You can leave the beer for a month, and THEN dry hop, if you know you are going to keg/bottle within a week or so of that.

You don't need to sanitize the hops, and you can either weigh them down with some sanitized marbles or something in a hop bag(you use the marbles to weigh down the bag so it doesn't float at the top), or just throw the hops in loose!

Edit: see how the aa% on the right column says 5.5% for Cascade and 10% for Centennial...you could pretty much half the Centennial to get a similar IBU based on the aa%.
