i'm looking forward to doing an all Willamette pale soon. will be very heavily late-hopped to get a big aroma.
brewing lots, rather not keep it all updated here

I just did a double brew day with both a Citra and a Chinook pale ale using the same recipe for both. The Citra is just bursting with citrus aromas, but the Chinook is super smooth and tasty and might just become my house ale. They are cold crashing now and I can't wait to get them on tap. I did identical hop schedules since they were almost the same AA%. I didn't do a 60min addition because I wanted them to be really smooth, but with a lot of hop flavor and aroma.
Both were hopped like this:
.5oz - FWH
.5oz - 45 min
.5oz - 15 min
.5oz - 5 min
2oz - dry hop

I agree.. it is a unique hop that would make a great highly drinkable pale ale.

Since you wanted something a little different I'm in the 'English Pale Ale' camp. Goldings/Fuggle/Willamette as mentioned.
Early brewers were primarily women, mostly because it was deemed a woman's job. Mesopotamian men, of some 3,800 years ago, were obviously complete assclowns and had yet to realize the pleasure of brewing beer.- Beer Advocate

Something you may not expect to be good - Go for German Hallertau! Wierd choice for a pale, but I tried it once and its a bit spicy with good character. I err on the side of a heavier aroma for this hop though, as it is milder.

Any recommendations for my next hop choice? I'd like to try something that has a different character than the ones listed above.

My basic recipe:
7 lbs. Light liquid malt extract
.5 lbs. Crystal malt(40L)
.5 lbs. Special Roast
.25 lbs. Vienna malt
Pacman or S-05 yeast
How was the simcoe ale? I brewed one, and at times I really like, but other times it has almost a sour?? taste.
Mmm, beer.

I'm a big fan of fuggles, it would work great for some sort of English pale like others have suggested
