I think it makes sense. WLP001 will give you good attenuation and a clean profile, which is what a blond fruit beer would need to keep it light and let the fruit flavor come through.
WLP051 has less attenuation and slightly more fruitiness than 001, which is what an IPA would need. If you ferment it at the lower end of the temperature range, then that might keep the fruitiness to a minimum. The reviews for it on the White Labs web site indicate that it's not really that fruity.
But, do what you want to do.
