Default dry hop decision help...

i currently have an ipa in primary, and these are the hops i have leftover for dry hopping:

1 oz citra whole leaf
1 oz simcoe whole leaf
1 oz amarillo pellet
1 oz centennial pellet.

i was thinking of just tossing them all in the secondary, or bagging them and put em in the keg. or i was also thinking of putting a half ounce of each in secondary and the rest in the keg... never done this last option before, but it sounds interesting.

any suggestions/ideas?

thanks

Lot more info is needed for a good reco. Such as what the OG and FG are (bigger IPA probably demands more hops, etc etc). Without any info I'd reco using the amarillo and centennial pellets in the secondary and calling it a day. Whole hops absorb a LOT of liquid and if you didn't plat for that ahead of time, you'll wind up with 4 gallons in the keg.
