I'd probably use different hops. Some kind of noble hop would be a little more to style (hallertauer is a good choice). Though, really, since you're just using the hops for bittering and not flavor or aroma it won't make that much of a difference.
A particular love for ancient, obsolete, or lesser-known style from both the US and abroad.
