I am going to dry hop a modified long hammer ipa clone recipe soon ... and all I have in the freezer is 1oz of cascade and 2oz of willamette. Any one know what the final taste difference would be if I went with just one variety or maybe a combo of 1oz of each of them? Thanks!

It sounds like there are a lot of centennial fans here but I don't feel like anyone has really explained why this hop is such a favorite. Any suggestions?
Maybe try Ahtanum. Sort of a toned down Cascade but with a hint of spice.
Primary: Karma Tsunami, Sour Puss, Rye Pale Ale
Secondary in Keg: Brett C Saison
On tap: Poolside Light Lager, Zythos Amber Ale, Imperial Stout, Saison

Im really fond of my Citra IPA (probably my favorite beer of all time) and I do a Citra/Chinook combination or a Citra/Amarillo both come out very good. I just use Calypso for the first time in a wheat and loved the aroma so gonna try a Citra/Calypso next time I brew it (which will be soon cause I like to have a constant supply of this IPA)

I've been impressed with 2oz of Willamette (leaf) dry hopped for 7-10 days. It brings a different type of hoppy aroma and is a nice change from Amarillo/Cascade/Centennial. I made a really good IPA with Warrior and Amarillo then dry hopped with Willamette.
Life is too short to drink cheap beer.
