Making a summer pale ale (recipe below)

I don’t like to waste what I spent money on, so only using some of the hops irks me.
I bumped up the nugget to 1/2 Oz, but was considering using the other half to dry hop.
Having little to know knowledge of nugget, not sure if this will work given the hops I am using?

Any thoughts or advice?
  • 8.5 lb (3.9 kg) Pale 2-Row malt
  • 10.0 oz (283 g) 20° L Crystal malt
  • 5.0 oz (142 g) 80° L Crystal malt
  • 5.0 oz (142 g) CaraVienne malt
  • 7.0 oz (142 g) Wheat malt
  • 0.4 oz (11 g) Nugget pellet hops, 13% a.a. (60 min)
  • 1.0 oz (28 g) Cascade pellet hops, 5.5% a.a. (5 min)
  • 0.4 oz (11 g) Nelson Sauvin pellet hops, 12.5% a.a. (5 min)
  • 1.0 oz (28 g) Cascade pellet hops, 5.5% a.a. (dry)
  • 1.0 oz (28 g) Nelson Sauvin pellet hops, 12.5% a.a. (dry)

Nugget is pretty mild. Not sure you'll get a lot out of it. I don't think it's the best choice for the other hops, either.

Thanks for advice. I think instead of fry hopping with nugget. I will just use the other 1/2 of Nelson (60% actually) in the dry hop!

My OCD doesn’t like to use .4 Oz when I can just round up to a half!
