No you did not make any mistakes, Cascade I am not a fan for dry hopping to me it is too grassy.
+1 to using something other than Cascade for dry hopping. I used it to dry hop an IPA I entered in a contest once. Scored a 43. The only ding I got on my sheet was for grassiness. And that was just an ounce for 7 days.
I have had good results withe Amarillo. I also have an IPA on tap now where I used 100% Falconers Flight. 1 ounce for 7 days again. The aroma is outstanding.
It won't hurt your beer at all. But I would only recommend 5-7 days. I should help minimize the chance of grassiness or other vegetative flavors.
