    I like your base. I'm a big fan of vienna in these type of beers.
    I wouldn't recommend using ALL of those hops together. Not because it would be bad, but because I personally feel like 3 verities is enough to get a good complex hop character.

    OHHHHH!!!! That's what you've got on hand... Get it! Sorry!

    Cascade for bittering with Citra and Amarillo for late additions is how I would go. I have heard great things about azacca, but don't have experience with it.

    Sorry, I don’t see a question.

    I would use the Centennial for bittering, ditch the Cascade and Sterling and use the remainder (~12 oz) equally in hop stand or whirlpool and again as dry hops during active fermentation.

    I also agree that centennial would be good to bitter with. Mainly just don't bitter with the Citra. Turns out catty

    Second that. One of the best brewers I know has the mantra, five grains, three hops, no more.

    Can’t disagree with Nosy or Billtown. I’ve brewed with all but Bravo. Some like NEIPAs with higher IBUs, some lower. I like both. If I had to narrow it down, I would go with Citra, Azacca and Amarillo. Late and dry.

    Ok, so lets narrow down the hops a bit, what about

    either 25is IBU of Centennial or Amarillo at bittering

    then
    Amarillo / Azacca / Citra
    At flameout, whirlpool at about 170, and dry hop (traditional not bio-trans)

    to a total of approx 75 IBU

    I wouldn't waste amarillo or centennial for bittering. Bravo would work well there in my experience.

    You have 1 oz each at 5 min. And .5 oz each whirlpool. I might switch those. You'll have less ibu but more aroma. But 5 min vs whirlpool might not make a whole lot of difference.
