Default Hop combinations to avoid!!!

So today, while I was at work poundering the mystery that is recipe design, one question came to mind. What are hop combinations that should be avoided while creating recipes? Does anyone have first hand experience in the realm of failed hop combos?

I threw in some fuggles late in the boil once. IPA tasted like dirt.

Hard to say, what constitutes failed? High-citrus hops will overwhelm noble hops, but all that means is you have a citrus-beer. More likely, people use the wrong hop type for a beer style.

Combos that take you out of style guide lines or just made your beer taste like dirt or fart, or foot.

It is all a matter of YOUR taste. I do an amber ale with cascade and fuggles. It is great .it is the same hop schedule that Bell's uses for their amber ale.

I used some real citrusy cascades in a hefeweizen and the banana clove did not mix well with it.

You forgot to capitalize it to emphasize something aggressively.

Argentinian Cascade.

I had a columbus/simcoe dry-hopped IPA that I could not drink.
