Default American brown ale - dry hopping ?

I have an ABA fermenting currently and I am debating if I should dry hop it or not. What is your take? I have some Cascade and Northen Brewer at hand.

Thanks
simon

janet's brown is a pretty popular recipe that uses centennial as dry hops.

I also always dry hop my American Browns. NB and/or Cascade should be great.

I wouldn't. I like the big malty browns. I don't want any hop aroma. You can though. Preference thing.
