I just brewed this for 2.5 gallons:
5 lbs Maris Otter
.5 oz cascade FWH
.5 oz cascade @ 15 min.
1 oz cascade @ 1 min.

My mash was about 152 F. My OG was around 1.054 and I am using S-05 yeast.

I have some cascade left. Should I dry hop? This is my first SMaSH and I don't want to over do the hops, but I do love hop aroma.

Thanks in advance.

Any other suggestions whether to dry hop or not?

Of course dry hop. I see no reason not to dry hop almost all of my beers.

Haha, thanks. I dont even know why I am worried about it. I have had beers that are too hoppy on the bitterness side, but I dont remember disliking a beer from too much hop aroma. In fact, when I drink a beer that has a lot of hop aroma (new belgium's mighty arrow for example) I usually cant stop sniffing it. Same when I brew. I LOVE the smell of hops.
