Boonies LCPA clone would make a good base for a Cascade only ale.

hey if your after a nice kit to use cascade with, i like combining cascade with morgans blue mountain lager kit.
also really good if you steep around 200g crystal with it and add some Light Malt if your using Extracts and Kits

Not a bad hop, and there is that temptation of going nuts, but try to resist.
If you really wanna appreciate the hop, keep the hop regime rather simple. It's quite aromatic, so not much more than 1g/L is like max for late hop (5-0min) and dry hop. It can get grassy if you overdo it.
Also the idea of bittering with something else might be recommended, just because it's not a very good bittering hop....bitterness can be a bit rough.

Malt bill, up to you. If you want some colour/caramel to it, steep some Crystal or add some Amber/Caramalt extract. But yeah, darker beers can handle a bit more bitterness.
