I'd also like to add columbus in for the ipa question. chinook, centennial, cascade, and columbus are the "4 american c hops" and are staples for pretty much any american style ale. Columbus and chinook are high yieldign plants too.
not sure if you've been tipped off to this yet but first year plants don't typically produce much if grown from a rhizome so keep that in mind. You could always buy a complete crown (equivalent of about a year old plant) from great lakes hops. that should get you going a little faster.
