If it is a hoppy American red, then yes!
Irish red, No.

Although I'm new to dry hopping from what I can gather on the fourms is that it couldn't hurt. Your really just adding more aroma to the beer so it wont get any bitter. As for the amount I just dry hopped a 5 gal batch of cranberry wheat with about half an ounce of cascade. Its still in the secondary , and when I tasted it a few days ago it tasted very good.

If its a 5 gallon batch you could do an oz of either. I love a good Centennial dry hop. How many IBU's is the recipe?

FWIW I wouldn't dry hop a kit you've not brewed before. First time with a recipe or kit and I like to brew it as written. Now if you are kegging that is a different story because you can drink some and then add hops later on.

Do 1oz, not 2, I think 2 will give you very dominant aromas.
