I was thinking of combining it with Amarillo, just to spite Jeff.
I think it might be excellent with a big dose of Amarillo. Please report back!

I used Hallertau Blanc in a hoppy Belgian wit with 3522 last fall. I really liked it. I thought the hop character went super well with the yeast profile.

Would dryhopping a beer made with Kolsch yeast  (but not a Kolsch beer as such) with HB make sense, or is that just throwing away money, with the Kolsch yeast being too subtle?

It would obviously be pretty non-traditional, but the white grape character of the Blanc would be a good compliment to the yeast character, if you used a light hand. You're right that the yeast is subtle and could get drowned out easily.
