I saw that too and I thought it unusual but I filed it in the back of my mind to try one day. Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA uses Citra, Magnum, and Crystal for late hopping and it certainly has a substantial late hop strength. That's enough for me to want to try using magnum when splitting a batch and dry hopping each differently.
