If they smell fresh and are in an oxygen barrier bag (foil) then they can be used as normal. If they do not have a good smell (like fresh hops) then they have aged considerably but can be used for bittering (cool some of the wort and taste it at 45 minutes) You can add more hops and boil longer. The only other option is to not use them (this is usually my choice).
