Default RIS extract kit w/ yeast change

I'm working from an RIS extract kit, which calls for s-04 yeast. I don't have s-04, but I do have us-05. I'm wondering how this will change the profile of the beer and if it would be better to wait until my LHBS has s-04. I want to brew this weekend, so will pitch the us-05 if it is feasible. I like drier stouts, so am not worried if it's somewhat drier than s-04 would produce.

Here is the basic recipe:
Steep: .5 lbs Simpson's roasted barley, .5 lbs Simpson's black malt, .5 lbs Simpson's chocolate malt.

6 lbs. Dark Malt Extract (60 min.)
6 lbs. Dark Malt Extract (15 min.)

2 oz. Galena (60 min.)

1.5 packs US-05 (calculated on Mr. Malty Pitching Calculator)
OG 1.087

Thanks in advance for any commentary.

Jeff

That looks like NorthernBrewer's recipe. I would pitch 2 packets of US-05. s-04 might poop out on a high gravity brew like that.
