With us-05 I usually add water to yeast. Put the yeast in my Pyrex cup then add water slowly and never get any clumping. Any issue with that

This is not correct. Rehydrate the dry yeast and proceed with the starter the same as you would with liquid yeast.

Isn't it easier to just get two packs of yeast?

Yes it would, if it would be possible to get another pack when you needed another pack.

The person making the starter said they were hydrating the yeast in starter wort, not water, so while your process will work just fine, they way it was described earlier would be counterproductive.
