Default Using homegrown hops in recipes

When I read a recipe that calls for 3oz of hops is that an accurate figure for dried hops from my plants? Or do hops purchased from a store use different figures?
Also, how do green hops compare to dried hops in taste and measurements?
Thanks,

wet to dry ratio is usually 5-1 so 15 ounces of wet hops would translate out to your 3 oz of dry. Another thing to take into account is the Alphas on your hops. Usually your higher alpha hops are reaching their peak for a few years.
