Default Dry Hopping with Sterling/Goldings

I have an Imperial IPA fermenting away in the closet and I was getting ready to rack to a secondary in the next couple of days. I have some extra hops on hand and was thinking maybe I'd throw them in the secondary with my beer for a couple of weeks. The hops I have are Goldings (pellets) and Sterling (whole). Nothing I've Googled says that these are good hops for dry hopping. What do you guys think? Should I just throw them in and see what happens? Or do I risk wasting the hops and ruining the beer?

Thanks
J

Depends on how much you've got.

Are the goldings East Kent or Styrian. Either way, they'll do well in an IIPA. The Sterling are a substitute for Saaz, with a earthier, spicy aroma that is more suited to a pilsner.

Assuming you brewed 5 gallons, I'd toss in 2, maybe even 3 oz of the Goldings.

EKG was the original hop for "hoppy" ales (English IPAs) so it will be great to dry hop with.
