You can- but.
But.......they probably are different AAUs, and simcoe is such a special hop that I wouldn't use it if I could use something else.
If you have any other hops at all, I would choose them over the simcoe. If not, you can use the simcoe if it's an American APA/IPA/Amber, and you can get roughly the same IBUs from it.
