Default should i add another ounce of cascade

I'm trying to make an IPA this is the recipe.
Anthem IPA Ingredients (for 5 gallons)

8lbs Pale Malt LME
3lbs Marris Otter Grain
.5lb crystal 60
1oz Nugget Hops AA 11.2% 60 mins
.5oz Galena AA 12.2% 60 mins
.5oz Galena AA 12.2% 30 mins
.5oz Cascade Hops AA 5.1% 30 mins
.5oz Cascade Hops AA 5.1% 15 Mins
1oz Cascade Hops AA 5.1% 0 mins
1oz Cascade hops AA 5.1% (Dry Hop)
11.5g Safale us-05 Yeast Pitch temp 79f
1 cup Dextrose for Priming
SG: 1.061
FG: 1.018

now, it only came out 5.8%. so i only added 1 ounce cascade for dry hopping.
I was going to add 2oz cascade but since the ABV was lower than i though it would be i was thinking 2oz might be too much for dry hop.
what do u guys think? should i add the other ounce of cascade to secondary? it tasted really nice at transfer to secondary.

LOL, Update... I added the other 1oz cascade. I just remembered people telling me about how dry hop is really no added bitterness so F it. I added the other ounce of cascade.

Correct, dry hopping is for aroma only, so hop till your nose is content, or your billfold screams, which ever comes first

yeah...the two weeks ago I made a IBA with the following hopping schedule

2oz Vanguard @ 60
1oz sterling @ 60
1.5oz liberty @ 15
0.5oz liberty @ 2
1oz argentine cascade @ 2
2oz cascade DH

Originally I did not plan on dry hopping, I went to the LHBS a day before my transfer to the secondary (a Thursday night), and bought an ounce of cascade. Then on Friday when I was transferring and adding the ounce of cascade, I decided I wanted to brew Saturday, so I went back to the LHBS and bought another ounce when purchasing some other ingredients for my Saturday brew session. When it was all said and done I added 2oz of cascade in the secondary and it has been one week since then.

Would you guys leave em in for one week or two?? I planned on two...
