Default Rye IPA onto American Brown yeast cake

Hello, just wanting to confirm that this should be fine to do for my 5th batch.

I have an American Brown finishing up in the primary that I'm going to bottle at about 4 weeks. OG was 1.061 and used US-05 dry yeast that I rehydrated. It's at about 1.016 or so now. I brewed this one as extract + specialty grain. Recipe: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/amer...own-ale-65318/

Next I'm gonna do EdWort's Bee Cave Rye IPA, recipe: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/bee-...rye-ipa-82451/ which uses the same yeast strain, and has an OG of 1.064. I'm gonna do this one as an all grain BIAB.

I am planning on pitching it straight onto the yeast cake (with blow-off hose) unless people think that's a bad idea, going darker to lighter.

Thanks!
