I haven't done a lager either, though I want to!
My problem is I only have space enough in my fermentation chiller for one fermenting vessel at a time, and a lager would tie it up for a while.
I've contemplated the idea of building up a nice pipeline of homebrew to drink while the chiller's tied up, but so far between my self, family, and friends, I haven't been able to brew fast enough to accomplish that.
Good luck on your ale. Again, give it a little extra time as the yeast might need a little extra encouragement after going dormant, but I'm pretty sure it should carbonate without issue.
