And just one hop?

No other ingredients.

I was thinking about giving a 2.5 gallon batch a try of 3 lbs of Briess Pilsen Light LME and some Kent Goldings (1 oz).

I also was thinking about adding sugar.

Anyone ever just brew the Pilsen Light on it's own as a malt?

Is it better than Bud Light?

Also... has anyone ever used these two hops together?

Hallertau and Kent Goldings

Do they mix well?

Cool website for bitterness (IBUs)

I've said this a few times on HBT. You can put whatever you want together, you can make mistakes, but in the end you WILL get beer. Whether it will win any awards is a different question. I've made every mistake in the book and I get drinkable beer. I've combined leftover ingredients and had a very good beer.
