I find centennial to be the cleanest, perhaps "brightest", of the "C" hops with the best (to my pallet) American IPA citrus-grapefruity aroma and flavor profile. I have never encountered "fruit loops" which, to me, sound like a fermentation issue.
As far as dry hopping with yeast still present IME if the beer is still too hazy with yeast and you dry hop the yeast will pull a lot of aroma down with them as they drop out and you may have to dry hop again. I try to dry hop once the beer clears some. I've gone as far as fined in primary, dumped yeast after a week and dry hopped after beer brightened.
