For a Pale Ale SMaSH, I think that's just fine. The hops are the feature here, 1/2 oz for bittering 2.5 gallons seems just right. The late addition hops seem spot on too. As for the dry hopping, I would just use the full 1oz for the aroma and some flavor. I don't dry hop for more than 5 days, as sometimes I've gotten undesired flavors from leaving the hops too long. I mostly double dry hop. Do half for 5 days, remove and replace with fresh hops for another 5. But since this is only 2.5 gal, 5 to 7 days should be perfectly OK for dry hopping. Good luck!
