Default FWH? should I?

I am brewing an IPA this weekend with the current hop additions
1 oz Magnum for bittering
1 oz Falconer's for flavor
1 oz Cascade for aroma

I have another ounce of Cascade around should I ...FHW with it? add at flameout? maybe dry hop? Or just leave the recipe as is....

thank you

Flameout or dry hop...

should be pretty good. I like Magnum as a bittering hop.

Another vote for Dry Hopping, that is the BEST way to add aroma/flavor to your hoppy beers.

I'll also vote for dry hopping since you don't have any dry hops yet, but definitely think about FWH in the future, its quite tasty.

Dry Hop.

I did FWH for the first time on a brew that is just about ready, from what I have sampled I like the results...

Definitely don't just toss it in as FWH because you have nothing better to do with it. FWH will substantially increase your bitterness, so would throw the recipe off from your plan.

That said, agreed with everyone else, your IPA will be very happy with a dry hop addition.

Thanks for the responses looks like dry hopping is the way to go.
