Default Simcoe Hops

I brewed an apa last night using columbus for bittering and simcoe for flavor. this morning coming from my airlock is the most wonderfull hop aroma! Ive never used these before and im loving them already. My question is, should i use the 1 oz. amarillo i got to dry hop with or get some more simcoe? I know amirillo is similar to cascade which makes me weary to use it. I just dont want to mask all that great simcoe aroma with cascade type aroma.(i like cascade, im just over it)
btw i used .5 oz. columbus at 60, and 30 and boy is this beer gonna be bitter! I tasted the wort and got angina from the bitterness, hopefully it will mellow a bit!

Pardon my lack of knowledge...is Simcoe an American hop variety? I've been trying to formulate an APA recipe and don't know the best American varieties to use.

Thanks.

yup...i think it came out in 2000. So far it smells awesome! Piney, musky, earthy...
Im definitely going to dry hop with a half ounce or more. i might do only a half cuz the og was kind of low (1.052) and the bitterness is kind of high (+55) and finally i only used .5 lbs of crystal, so i want to taste some kind of malt.

Was your recipe all grain, or extract w/grains? Would you mind posting it? I'd be really interested in trying it. At least, let us all know how the brew turns out!

Yeah. I did an all Centennial (4 oz.) dry hopped with an ounce of Simcoe. I also dry hopped a Sierra Nevada clone with Simcoe. Both were good batches.

I made the Zombie Dust clone, and dry hopped with 2oz of citra and simcoe each. I must say it was the best Pale ale I have ever had. I was pineapple-orange juice, grapefruit and just a little pine
