For this "mild" I'd only be adding a minuscule bittering addition. Would using Centennial stand out compared to a noble type of hop?

Centennials are one of my favorite hops. It's strong citrus overtones may drown out any noble additions. Noble hops like Hallertau and Saaz have a very mild bitterness to them. No comparison to the American style "C" hops.

One pellet of magnum and you're good.

The idea of using such a small bittering addition (0.075 oz) seems so odd, and not worth a hop bag. Of course I wouldn't bother with a muslin bag.

There wouldn't be any other additions. It would be one bittering addition and nothing more.
