Default Needing some hop help please

I'm going to brew my Boddingtons clone soon (as soon as my scale comes in the mail). The recipe below calls for Northern Brewer 6.6% pellets. My lhbs only had Northern Brewer Northern Brewer whole leaf hops with an 8.0% alpha. My questions are:

1. Is one ounce of whole hop the same as one ounce of pellets?
2. How much less of this hop should I use because of the alpha difference?

1 lbs. Muntons Dry Amber
3.5 lbs. Muntons Dry Light
.1875 lbs. Cane Sugar
1 oz. Fuggle (Pellets, 4.9 %AA) boiled 60 minutes.
0.25 oz. East Kent Goldings (Pellets, 5.7 %AA) boiled 60 minutes.
0.25 oz. East Kent Goldings (Pellets, 5.7 %AA) boiled 15 minutes.
.125 oz. Northern Brewer (Pellets, 6.6 %AA) boiled 15 minutes.
1 teaspoons Irish Moss (not included in calculations)
2 teaspoons Gypsum (not included in calculations)
0.25 teaspoons Epsom Salts (not included in calculations)
Wyeast 1968

Thanks for any help

Pellets provide a little more bitterness (about 10%) than whole leaf for the weight, so the higher AA in your whole leaf would balance out that. If you had 8% pellets, you would probably want to reduce the hops to 6.6/8, IF they were the main bittering hop.

Since the NB is being used as a minor flavor hop, the AA doesn't matter. Use the same amount.

That's exactly what I was hoping to hear. Thanks for the reply.

I was just looking for a boddington's clone.
Where did you find this one?
Did you brew it?
How did it turn out?
