Default American Ale Yeasts

Can anybody tell me the difference between

American Ale Wyeast 1056
Pacman Wyeast 1764
American Ale Blend WLP060

Using in moderately hopped (IBU 40ish) American Pale and Amber ales.

The differences you see from these yeasts might be quite subtle - they are all clean, neutral strains. Wyeast 1056 is from Sierra Nevada; American Ale Blend WLP060 is obviously a blend, but includes the same SN strain as well as a couple others. The Pacman is from Rogue - I've never used it, but it is reportedly clean-fermenting and will tolerate high-gravity well.
