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?

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.
