are lme and dme the same when mixing pound for pound. I will be having leftovers from both lme and dme and want to find the best way to turn these ingedients into something bubbly with a nice hoppy flavour.

No. There's about a 20% difference. When subbing LME for DME, add 20%; when subbing DME for LME, subtract 17%.
