Id be careful about using DME if the recipe asks for corn sugar. Corn sugar offers no unfermentables while adding alcohol and helping to dry the beer out. DME will add some unfermentables as most are made with some sort of dextrine malt (Briess uses carapils) and will add mouthfeel and body while boosting alcohol.
It's all in what you are after finished product wise IMO. The choice between dextrose and DME in my AG IIPA ain't no choice at all.... Dextrose for sure.
