Default Hops & Grains

So I recently brewed my first bath of American Pale Ale and it came out really well, could have had a little more carbonation but the taste was on point. I recently purchased a bunch more of supplies for my round 2 batch and I realized that I did not coordinate any of my hops together. Here's the list of supplies I got:

1LB Caramel Wheat Grain
5LB Amber Dry Malt Extract
2OZ Cascade hops
1OZ Centennial hops
1OZ Palisades hops
1OZ Kent Golding hops
1LB Corn Sugar
1pk Ale Yeast (11g)

So my question is do you guys have any suggestions on good combinations of the hops that I've purchased that would brew a solid beverage. I'm into IPA's and bitter beer but I enjoy all beer.... especially home brewed.

Cheers gentlemen

*Just saw the recipe section, after this post.. my bad

Use the Centennial and the Cascade. They will go really well together.

I would suggest not using amber or dark extract, especially in pale ales or IPAs. When you purchase extract the next time, buy "pale" or "light" and then use some grains like crystal 40L for flavor and color in pale ales. For darker beers, chocolate malt and darker crystal malts would be good.
