Should be good! According to Hopslist both the Centennial and the Ahtanum are similar to Cascade. So you should end up with a nice spicy, citrusy beer. It'll only have about 30 IBUs (you haven't listed the IBUs from the Cascade, but it'll probably be similar to the Ahtanum).

Assuming you're making the usual 23 or so litres you'll end up with a beer at about 5%. For my taste buds I'd up the IBUs to closer to 40. If you're using up leftovers then I'd get back into your recipe calculator and see what happens if you add 10 minutes to the boil time for both the Centennial and the Ahtanum.

Have fun!

EDIT Just realised you were mashing when you posted. My suggestions are probably much too late!
