I'm thinking of using a quarter-pound of each: Cascade, Centennial, and Williamette.

I'm not sure exactly how to approach this...

I could mix them all equally.

I could mix Cascade and Centennial equally as bittering, and use Williamette as aroma.

I'm planning on continual-hopping.

What do YOU think?

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I'd keep the cascade for the flavour/aroma but then that would be more mainstream IPA anyway.
I recently did an APA using all Willamette for a club brew and it was refreshingly different

Use the centennials for bittering, and then mix the WIllamette and Cascade for the flavor/aroma hop additions.

I made a Pils mixing all noble hops and continually adding them. It came incredible. I think you're onto something with this IPA. I would definitely use the Willamette as the aroma. Keep that separate from the cascade and centennial.

I agree- I LOVE willamette and cascade together. Here's one of my hopping schedules (this one for an American amber):
1.50 oz Williamette [4.80 %] (60 min) (First Wort Hop) Hops 27.9 IBU
1.00 oz Williamette [4.80 %] (10 min) Hops 6.1 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [5.40 %] (5 min) Hops 1.9 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [5.40 %] (1 min) Hops 0.4 IBU
0.50 oz Williamette [4.80 %] (0 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep) Hops

Thanks for the replies everyone.
I decided to use the Cent. for bittering (first 30 mins), Will. for the flavor (next 30 mins), and Cascade for the aroma (last 30 minutes and dry hop).
I'll post on here how it comes out.

I think 1/4# of each is more than enough for a 10 gal batch, so I hope that's at least what you're doing. If not, that's gonna be a hop bomb, and at the very least fun to make.
I like to mix hops. Throw them all in a bowl and mix em up and then add your additions from the bowl. That's how I roll.

You're doing a 90 minute boil? I don't understand how willamette for flavor hops with more than 30 minutes would work. You want the flavor hops at 20 minutes (left in the boil) or less.

I'd definitely run the recipe through some brewing software and post it up here for critique if you're not experienced with formulating IPA recipes. It should like you could have a very bitter, unhoppy beer if I'm reading that right.
