Centennial for anything IPA/pale
Saaz for anything European

Centennial - some of the highest rated IPA's use only centennial for flavor/aroma/dryhop
East Kent Golding - great English hop found in a lot of English styles
Hallertau Mittelfrueh - good for subtle lagers and big hoppy beers as well
Amarillo - great flavor/aroma/dryhop
Columbus - good bittering hop, mixes well with other hops in late additions as well

Magnum- can bitter ANY style of beer from English, German, US, Belgian, etc.

Willamette- good for British beers and US beers as well.

Simcoe- it works as bittering and flavor or aroma.

Hallertauer- for anything except maybe hoppy US beers

Amarillo- just because I love it in any US style beer.
