Thanks to Bob Hanlon for suggesting:

Column[{
 Row[{
   "a ", Slider[Dynamic[a], {1, 5, 1}],
   , a = 4; Dynamic[a]}],
 Row[{
   "b ", Slider[Dynamic[b], {1, 5, 1}],
   , b = 2; Dynamic[b]}],
 Dynamic[Plot[a + b*x, {x, 0, 1},
   PlotRange -> {0, 10},
   ImageSize -> 360]]},
 Center]

It centers the control fine, but does not use Manipulate.
If I rewrite the exapmle with Manipuate as

Thank you, but I was using Manipulate?
here si the equivalent:

Manipulate[
 Plot[a+b*x,{x,0,1},PlotRange->{0,10},ImageSize->360],
 {{a,4},1,5,1,Appearance->"Labeled"},
 {{b,2},1,5,1,Appearance->"Labeled"},
 AppearanceElements->None,
 Alignment -> Center]

The contro lis flush left again, the option Alignment acts only in the
white Display area and not on the controls.
The option ControlPlacement appears somewhat limited and has no Center
setting.

Options[Manipulate] shows that there is also ControlAlignment, but I
cannot find any documentation for that option (the Documentation
Center links to RandomChoice!?!).
What are defined settings for ControlAlignment?
