Default Nelson and ...?

Thinking about doing an IPA with Nelson and HBC 342 and maybe Centennial for bittering. Anybody use any of these or combine all of them? Looking for a very Fruity/Citrusy In your face IPA. Any opinions would be great, thanks!

No idea what HBC 342 is, but Nelson Sauvin combines well with many American hops: Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, Citra, Chinook, etc etc. You used Nelson Sauvin before? If not, try using ONLY Nelson Sauvin for a beer to isolate the character. It's one of my favorite hops, but not everybody loves it.

I think Nelson goes well with something piney or dank to tone down the gushing fruitiness. Chinook or simcoe is my vote
