    D-76, or the Ilford equivalent ID-11, are good starting points.

    Since you've never done it before, it doesn't really matter- you'll get fabulous results from all of these developers- maybe, since you're scanning, you should look to keeping the grain fine, as grain can be problematic with some scanners.
    Once again, the "right" developing time for these films can never be "right" first time without some understanding of what's going on with the exposure and development, in relation to the conditions under which you took the photograph, i.e., scenes with high, normal or low brightness ranges- exposure and development needs to vary according to these broad conditions.
    Read a bit about the zone system before shooting and developing the firat roll. Play around with it a bit and don't just change developers and films because you didn't like the first results, because if you do that, good results will always elude you.
