Simcoe
Centennial

Simcoe/Amarillo/Citra throughout would get my vote. My favorite so far has been Columbus/Simcoe/Amarillo, but the beer I did with Citra was fantastic.

Simcoe and Amarillo in the boil (equal blend for each addition) then a blend of Simcoe, Amarillo and Citra for the dry hop.

Here is my latest house IPA. I have made two 10 gal batch this summer and it's been on tap the whole time. Plenty of hop flavor and aroma! The dry hopping really just takes it to the next level on this one.

It's not a double IPA but something you might be able to play with to make it into what you are looking for.
