Default Any lager recipe ideas for homegrown hops?

I have about 1# each of Chinook, Cascade, Centennial and Galena that I have harvested and I would like to brew a highly hopped lager. Maybe bittering with Chinook and dry hopping with Cascade.

I know of many ale recipes to make a dent in my harvest, but is there a lager style/recipe that would do the same?

There is nothing wrong with doing a lager hopped up with American varieties, it should be delicious... but it won't be to any "style" that I'm aware of. Just call it an IPL.
