Default Dry Hopping Suggestions

I am going to brew an IPA here shortly and have decided to split the 5 gallon batch into two secondary fermenters and dry hop them with different hops to see what kinds of flavors I can get and how it changes the flavor of the beer. I was wondering what kinds of hops I should consider for the dry hopping. I love hoppy beers but am not really looking to go extreme on this batch. I am thinking both bitter and citrus hops would be good. Any ideas?

I like to use centennial or CTZ. Simcoe would be good too, or maybe citra if you want a citrus boost. I haven't tried citra but have heard some good things.

yeah, those are all good ones. citra isn't really citrus-y though, more tropical fruits, mangoe-y, maybe papaya. i like amarillo a lot for citrus. simcoe is great. put those to together and you have IPA gold, IMO.

I'm set to dry hop my first IPA with Citra and Summit, so I'll keep an eye on this thread...
