Default Received extra hops, what to do?

Hello,

Brewing my first Partial Mash, a Cascade Pale Ale Partial Mash kit from Midwest Supplies.

3.3lb. of Light Malt Extract
4 lb. American 2-row malt
8 oz. Carapils
8 oz. Caramel 10L
3 oz. Cascade pellets (60, 15, 5)

On advice I read, I also picked up 1 oz of Cascade for dry hopping.

But low and behold, I have 5 oz of Cascade in the box! Should I make use of this extra hops, or just save it in the fridge for the next brew?

I brewed that one myself. Been in bottles some 5 days now. That extra half ounce would make a nice dry hop.

I've already got 1 oz ready for dry hopping, would you increase it to 2 oz?

Sounds good. That'll leave me with an extra .5oz, should I throw that in at the 15 min mark or just get rid of it?

The kit is a biab,& I used a cake cooling rack in the bottom of my BK to keep the bag of grains from burning on the bottom. It also allows the hot water to circulate beneath it. Mashing at 155 for 1 hour seems to have worked well for me. OG range is 1.042-1.046,& I got 1.044 my 1st time out. My FG was 1.012,the upper limit of the range given. Since I did a fine crush,& US-05 is medium flocculation,it was slightly misty at bottling time. after 3 days,the bottles are clear. Looks like amber orange after 5 days in. But I also saved the 3.3lb jug of gold LME for flame out,like I usually do. The mash being 50% of the fermentables in a 3 gallon partial boil was great for all the hop additions.
