Default Hop selection

Hi,
I'm new to home brewing. I just got done with my first batch and it turned out surprisingly good. I want to make my own recipe, so I did some reading...
I think i want a hoppy bitter pale ale. Sierra Nevada pale ale rocks btw. So I have come up with this hop selection: centennial Columbus and cascade.
Good choice or should I consider others?

I recommend you do some more reading. Not to be rude, but there are many different ways to bitter an APA. Read through some of the recipes in the link below and see what sounds good to you. Your best bet will be to just experiment based on what you read. Good luck and welcome to the obsession errr.....hobby!

there are plenty of lists out there, but this was the first one I used. Most lists are outdated or don't list newer hops.

Those 3 work well together. I like to bitter with columbus do some Centennial around 10-15 cascade at flameout, then dry hop columbus and/or centennial.
