60g centennial dry hop for 5 days

1 packet US-05

That'll give you a nice hoppy beer around 5.5% (depending on efficiency).
I'd do something similar, keep it simple and concentrate more on the process than the recipe. More hops might not seem like much extra effort but on a first brew ever little extra can seem quite daunting.
