Default Favorite IPA Hops

Was just curious what everyone's Favorite Hops are used in IPA's?

I just made a new IPA (Low Pro IPA) recipe and have already made 3 batches of it,Used Citra. I can keep it on tap. Had to get a Custom Handle For it too.. So guess you could say i'm on a Citra Hop Kick right now!

You'll get lots of opinions on this topic. I like Centennial, Amarillo, and Simcoe.

My favorite at the moment is Citra. Can't go wrong with simcoe/amarillo/centennial for flavor/aroma. I use a lot of columbus to bitter and cascade to dry hop also. But Citra is good for all.

I've been big on Centennial lately. It just seems to fit well with my go to hoppy beers. Citra hadn't even been on my radar but now I really want to try it. After reading its description I want to substitute it in this weekend's brew but my very large, national LHBS says it won't be back in stock until December. WTF?
