Our Black IPA did not finished due to user error. :-) At this point, before dry hopping, can I repitch some 05? The SG was 1.089

What happened, why didn't the first yeast pitch finish it out?

Not knowing what the user error is, I would try to shake up the yeast cake and bring the temp up ~5 F (but keep it below 75). Consistency is key here. Don't let the temp make big swings. If that fails after a few days I'd try the 05. Keep in mind that you'll be asking the new yeast to start working in an already alcoholic environment. As such, I'd do a mini-starter for the SF05. Give it about 6 hours in 1.040 wort at your target pitching temp before you put it in the beer. You want the yeast active before they hit the alcohol.

good luck!
