Default Wat to do with these hops

Hi I brewed a citra/amirillo pale ale recipe yesterday and iv got some hops left over I'm gonna dry hope with them in 2 weeks how should I store them till then? Also the batch I made was 4 gallons, iv got 1.2 ounces of Amarillo and 1.8 ounces of citra left, would it be ok if I used all 3 ounces to dry hope my 4 gallon batch or would that be too much? Thanks

dry hopping with that amount would be fine if it's an ipa, you can store them in the fridge til' then

This is just a pale ale ibu's are gonna be about 36 without the dry hop (dunno if dry hopping adds bitterness) and only about 4.5% (had issues with my boil and didn boil off enough water)

Dry hopping won't add any bitterness, only the perception of bitterness. With 3 oz. of dry hops you will however get a massive hop aroma

I'd use only half the citra to balance them out a bit. I find citra contributes a lot more aroma per oz than other hops (in a dry hop).

You can toss them in straight from the freezer.
