Default Dry hopping Three Floyd's Alpha King Clone

So I just brewed an Alpha King clone last night. I had to substitute a few things so I'm not really concerned about it tasting like the real thing.

It calls for .5 oz. Warrior and .5 oz. of centennial for dry hopping. I was thinking about adding some Amarillo but I don't know how much. You think Amarillo would be good? Do you think I should mess with it or will the ounce of hops be enough for a good aroma?

Also, How long should I let this sit in primary before moving it? I usually Primary for three weeks and then bottle. This is my first time dry hopping.

I love Alpha king but I REALLY love the aroma of Dreadnaught IIPA. Any Dreadnaught lovers out there?

Would it be overkill to give this thing a real huge mango, peach, citrus, hoppy nose?

I just want to give this beer a great aroma. I don't want to ruin it though.

Any recommendations on what I could add to this dry hopping schedule? Keep in mind, I don't want to spend a ton of money on this. Maybe add another 2 ounces at most. That would be a total of 3 ounces for Dry hop.

If it helps, here is the recipe I Brewed up:

1/4 lbs. Crystal 80L
.5 lbs. Dingemans Cara 20 Malt (Lovibond 20)

7 lbs. Light DME

1 oz. Columbus @ 60 minutes
.5 oz. Warrior @ 30 minutes
1 teaspoon Irish moss @ 15 minutes
1 oz. Centennial @ 5 minutes

.5 oz. Warrior DRY HOP
.5 oz. Centennial DRY HOP

Safale us-05 yeast

I won't be dry hopping for a few weeks so any advice appreciated! Thanks!
