Default Hop additions to amarillo pale ale kit

I am brewing the Amarillo pale ale kit from Midwest and want to add some additional hops to it. I've heard the combo of Amarillo and simcoe go we'll together and want to add simcoe to it but I'm not sure when I should add them. The hop schedule is Columbus at 60, Amarillo at 20 and Amarillo at flameout. Any suggestions on when to add the simcoe? Thanks

I'd add .5 ounce of simcoe with each addition of amarillo. I LOVE amarillo and simcoe together!

Awesome! Should I dry hop as well or just let it be?

I think dry hopping is a waste of expensive hops like simcoe and Amarillo, unless you want your beer to smell like a hop garden every time you pour a pint.

I am a huge fan of amarillo and simcoe together and separately. Great balance of bitter, citrus and resinous qualities. I say dry hop if you can, but if not, just combine the hops at each scheduled addition and make sure you add at 5 minutes to flameout. Sounds like a quality brew.

I added .5 oz of simcoe to each Amarillo addition and I haven't tasted the final product yet bc it's still conditioning in the bottle but the samples tasted and smelled great.

I just finished cleaning up...I did the 20 minute addition as called, but then broke the flameout addition into .5oz at 10min and .5oz at flameout. I will still dryhop with simcoe .
