I would probably go with EKG if I was planning on any late hop additions... best part is, you may actually be able to find them now that the harvest is happenin'.

have fun.

Well, for an Irish stout (or almost any stout), I wouldn't plan ANY hop additions other than your bittering addition. Roasted malts and hop flavor/aroma don't usually work very well together, certainly not in this style. EKG, Fuggles, would be fine, appropriate, and woudl be my first choice. But, if it's just for a bittering addition you could get away with pretty much any clean hop.

If you are looking to do one bittering hop up front, I would suggest Northern Brewer.

I went with Northern Brewer, thanks guys.

The recipe called for 2 oz is that too much?

It depends on the Alpha Acid. I would probably back it down a bit as the usual AA for northern brewer is around 7 to 9%.

Also depends on your preference. I really like stouts that aren't heavy on the bitterness to bring the roasted barley out.
