How about using the cascade as bittering and the willamet for the late addition? Im stuck with those hopes as i already bought the receipe. He use the cascade because its an american version. So it might be more of an american stout than a foreign.

Using American hops for an American beer isn't as important as the overall character. There should be little to no esters, phenols, and diacetyl. American styles (in general) tend to have hop flavor and aroma. English styles tend to come out on the malty side.

So I brewed it yesterday. everything went right. I thought I was going to be rusty, havent brew in a few of months. I switched the hops. Used the cascade for bittering and the willamettes at 15 and flameout. smelled great, coffee, a bit of cocoa, floral and woody. this morning was bubbling like crazy. OG was 1.070.
