Default Dry hopping a fresh hopped beer

So I made an fresh-hopped IPA the other day. I used 1oz dry simcoe and 0.5oz dry centinnial at 60mins, 6oz wet cascade at 10mins and 6oz wet cascade at flameout. When I make this recipe without wet hops I usually dry hop for a week or so before bottling. My question is would it be okay to dry hop this beer as usual or will I lose a lot of my fresh hop aroma and such? Do you think the hop schedule above will be good for an IPA or should I dry hop w/ 1oz cascade (dry) before bottling. TIA

I love dry hopping and i love ipa's. So if you were to ask me if you should dry hop an ipa, my answer would most likely be yes any and every time.

I don't think I would dry hop you might lose some of the hop complexities that come from the wet hops

good point hillybilly. I have never used fresh hops so I am not sure of the difference. I bet I would still prefer another hop addition but that is simply preference. I need to get my hands on some fresh hops!
