How about posting the recipe you were planning on using. That would help us out, your post is a little vague.

Personally, I've never had good results with pre-hopped extract.

+1 on seeing that recipe.

Only one way to tell how it would work; do it. I would add some aroma hops just because canned pre-hopped doesn't have much aroma.
