Pellets provide a little more bitterness (about 10%) than whole leaf for the weight, so the higher AA in your whole leaf would balance out that. If you had 8% pellets, you would probably want to reduce the hops to 6.6/8, IF they were the main bittering hop.
Since the NB is being used as a minor flavor hop, the AA doesn't matter. Use the same amount.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
