Why isn't one of my domains in the URL drop-down?
If a domain (or sub-domain) isn't in the list of domains that you can install WordPress on, but it is on your DreamHost account, it must not be set up as a fully-hosted domain.

Remember, mirrored domains, redirect domains, parked domains, and cloaked domains can't have WordPress installed to them.

To change a domain to be fully hosted just go to the "Domains > Web" area and click "Edit" for that domain. It should allow you to change it, so long as your plans allow you to add another fully-hosted domain!

Once you've changed it, go back to the WordPress Blog area and it should now be in the select box!
