There is no entry for "centrifical" in dictionary.com.
There is no entry for "centrifical" in Wiktionary.org.
AFAIK, there's entry in the OED either.

They are different forces, but the question wasn't asking about that.
There is often a method to the madness, but always a madness to the method.

Centrifugal force doesn't actually exist, and centripetal force makes no sense in my head, really.

So both of the two bottom options are correct.
