Sure, you can do that. What I used to do was put 1/2 my first runnings and then 1/2 my second runnings in each boil pot (you can just run them off into the brewpot, eyeballing it) and then split the hops evenly. I chilled them, and then combined in the fermenter. It worked fine until I got a bigger pot.
