I made another replacing Chinook with Cascade, and went from .25 to .50 on the Centennial. How would you think that would turn out?

From what it looks like, you'd be brewing a honey blonde ale. According to this, for having an O.G. of 1.054 and 16 IBUs, you would get a VERY malty beer. If i were you i'd toss in maybe half a pound of carapils, and half a pound of crystal (40L maybe) and definately up to hops!

Here is your recipe with added specialty grains and hops:

Well, it all determines on your taste. By using the Recipator along with the malt/hops chart you can make your APA a slightly bitter than being balanced or overly hoppy. Good luck with the brew!
