What is the base recipe you are making? Without knowing I would suggest 1 lemon and 1 lime and soak the zest in some cheap vodka to sanitize it

You can either dry hop it or add at flame out

You appear to be making an American Pale Ale, with the hops you've selected I would not try to turn this into a lemon lime ale

You would be better off with a base of an Amercan wheat.

For the recipe you listed IMO use WY1056 yeast
