Since the days of Isaac Newton, it's NEVER been centrifugal. Here's how things work, as conceptualized by him.
Objects travel with the same motion forever, unless/until some force acts on them to accelerate them. That concept is called inertia. It means that if an object is going in a circular path, it must constantly be acted on by a force directed towards the center: a CENTRIPETAL FORCE. Otherwise, it'd just travel in a straight-line path, instead of constantly turning to follow a circular path.
But here's where "centrifugal force" comes from. People notice that they tend to move away from the center; this isn't caused by a force, but by their previous motion, continuing to exist and take them away from the center.
An object HAS NO FORCE IMPELLING IT OUTWARD FROM THE CENTER OF ROTATION! Its inertia will carry it outward, since it's moving in a direction tangent to the circular path. However, it's being constantly accelerated by a centripetal force back inward, keeping it around.
