Default IPA with Hop substitutions

Hey all,
I am brewing Jamil's American IPA from his book "Brewing Classic Styles".
The recipe calls for Horizon hops as the bittering hop but all I have on hand for bittering are:
1/2 ounce Warrior
3oz Chinook
2oz Columbus
I am thinking about doing the 1/2 ounce Warrior along with 1/4 Chinook.
I know the two hop styles are very different but its the only way I can use the 1/2 oz of Warrior in the recipe.
Good Idea?
Also "Designing Great Beers says to mash @ 1 quart per pound for PAle ales and IPA's. I normally brew with 1.25 or 1.3 quarts per pound.
Should I go with the thick mash? I want this beer to be dry so I am using a 90 minute mash with a temp of 149F.
Thanks in advance!

I've actually heard Jamil say that you don't need to be to picky about bittering hops, which makes sense. Just use what you've got that will equal the alpha % the recipe calls for.

You're fine with the substitution. And your mash should produce a highly fermentable wort.
