Default Hops substitution

Will Chinook hops work as a substitute for Willamette hops in a porter recipe? They'd be used for aroma only. Thanks.

Chinook has a pretty distinctive taste and aroma, I'd sub it for buttering but not aroma.

I did an Arrogent Bastard clone in nov. that was all Chinook and its still pretty harsh 4 months later.

I'd probably choose a noble hop instead, and I like chinook's flavor and aroma profile. It's piney, resinous and pretty strong which is out of the BJCP style guidelines for a porter. Porters are supposed to have a malty, roasty smell with little to no hops aroma. The best hops to use with that core are light additions of the noble hops, which lend floral and very mild spice/earthy characteristics.

I'd feel much more comfortable going with East Kent Goldings, Hallertau or Tettnanger.
