I don't think peach and centennial will play well, but the basic recipe is sound. Maybe split the batch after fermenting and add the peaches to half? For fruit beer, it's a good idea to keep the IBU in the 10-20 range.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
