Hop combinations for IPAs

(1/10) > >>

I've brewed an IPA a couple of times using Centennial for bittering and Cascade for aroma.  I want to try something different.

What are your favorite hop combinations for an IPA?

In The Sand:
Depends on what you're looking for.  If you like something fruity/citrusy, you may want to use simcoe, citra, or amarillo.  My favorite combo is citra and simcoe.  I use citra to bitter and finish.  I haven't played around with any earthy/piney hops yet in my IPAs, but you may want to throw chinook in the mix as well.

simcoe, amarillo and columbus

+1.  Love it.  I love Centennial/Amarillo/Columbus too.  As said, depends on what you're looking for though.

My wife asked for tropical, so our house IPA is a little Magnum for bittering, and combination of Amarillo/ Cascade for fwh, end of boil and dry hop.
