Default Need recipe advice

I am getting better and better making my own recipes based off of other recipes here on HBT but I have ran into a problem today. I have several hop varieties and I am not sure what to make with what I have.

I am basically sticking with a basic malt profile - 2 Row and Crystal. I used some Biscuit in a Citra IPA that is currently fermenting and I am open to other options as well

Here'a what I got:
2 oz Citra - I may use these to dry hop my Citra IPA, depends on on the 3 week taste sample
2 oz Galena
1 oz Chinook
1 oz Cascade
1 oz Willamette

Any opinions?

Use the Galena as a bittering hop. You could do a lot of things with the rest. I would go with Chinook and Willamette at 10-15 minutes and cascade and citra at 5-0 minutes. Dry hop with your leftovers. You have a lot of potent pacific northwest hops, it will be hard to mess up.

Citrusy. Most of those should get a pretty Citrusy profile.

Thanks for the feedback. I am leaning towards using both Galena for bittering and possibly a bit of Chinook.

As I have only concentrated on the Malt and Hops in my recipes I am now wanting to try different yeasts. I have always relied on White Labs - 001 (California Ale) but I am wanting to try something different.

My malt profile will probably just be 2 Row and Crystal.

Yeast Possiblities:
Wyeast 1056 - American Ale
Wyeast 1272 - American Ale II
Wyeast 1332 - Northwest Ale

Which would be the best with my avaliable hops?

1056 will really highlight the profile of the hops.

Brewstore was out of 1056 so I got 1272 in place of it along with 1332 since these hops have a pacific profile. Brewday is next Saturday so I have time to decide between the two.

Went to homebrew store and they were out of 2-row so I got Marris Otter instead.

How will this change the above recipe? Seems like it is going to be an English Pale Ale with Pacific hops.

No Maris otter is just a solid grain. Should give you a great backbone so you can go ahead and hop the hell out of it.
