Default aging cream ale with wlp080

Fermentation is finishing up with an all grain batch of Cream Ale that I used WLP080 Cream Ale Blend yeast. I fermented around 65 degrees and I am about to dry hop for a few days before I bottle. Once I bottle this, should I age/condition this like an ale or a lager (cool or at room temp)? WLP080 is a "blend" yeast, containing both ale and lager yeast in it. My O.G. was 1.054 and it is 1.012 after only 3 days.

Thanks, Tony

I'd probably cold condition it a bit before bottling, as it really seems to "crisp" up the finish.
