I tried looking around to see if there was even a hop called Target with no luck.
Does the specification for 1 oz. Target mean the 1 oz. Fuggle or did they send me the wrong hop?
They sent you the wrong hop. Target is a good bittering hop, fuggles can also be used for bittering, but target is usually twice as high in AAs.
Use the other half of the goldings with the fuggles and a half oz. of any other hop you may have to get close to the IBUs of one oz. of target. Or you may have to go with what you got.
