Default 3 Beers, 1 Yeast?

So, today, I brewed a Pale Ale. Last week I brewed an IPA, which I pitched onto a yeast-cake from an IPA I brewed two weeks before that. This is the White Labs "Cry Havoc" strain. So, should I pitch todays brew onto the cake again(3rd beer), or use the 05 dry yeast that I had planned. I'll be using one or the other by the end of this evening.

I'd go ahead and pitch on the cake one last time. As long as it's not a 1.040 beer going onto a 1.070 yeast cake, I think that would be fine.

It's more like a .058 beer onto a .067 cake.
Yeah, I think I will. It's not like they're totally different beers. It's more like I'm poverty stricken right now and I'm trying to save a lousy pack of yeast.
For what it's worth, this thread should have been in the "Drunken Ramblings" section.
It's been a long day, but I'll be alright tomorrow.
Thanks Yoop
