Looking at this for hop profile for 007 and the one below for citra I think you are good.  I think the peaks hit on the same areas.  I would go 1:1 if it was me.

Thanks Fellas.  Drezz had me covered to the point with my last APA that I took home a win!!!  I'm thinking equal 1 ounce doses of each; Whirlpool 170-180F, 2 days into ferment and 3 to 4 days into ferment.  Using a pack each 04 & 05.  Pitching in the very low 60's and let free rise to mid 70's like I did last time.

Which begs to ask..... if the 007 is a definite, maybe sub out the El Dorado for Simcoe, similar to the ever popular Citra/Simco combo................................

I think the Citra/El combo would be a good one to play with first.  I think Simcoe could work here but would not be the fruit/juicy beer since Simcoe has a bit more edge to it.

 

As for the yeast blend.  I personally would start off at 66 and rise.  You will get the esters from the 04 that way.  A beer i have on tap now with the blend fermented in the LOW 60's/high 50's because I was away and forget to fix the temp before I left.  While the beer is good it is missing something that i get from the higher initial temps.  Just my $0.02 on it.

All valuable to me :)  Just to be clear here; NOT El Dorado & 007 but Citra and El Dorado?  I don't think there's a wrong answer just curious about your approach.
