Simcoe with columbus and cascade

So I am brewing this weekend, but just realized I have Simcoe in the fridge. I have never brewed with simcoe. Supposed to be piney? Does anyone have a good place in the recipe below to add an oz, or will it clash with columbus and cascade?

10 lbs 8.0 oz Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Victory Malt (25.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM)

0.6 oz Magnum [14.0%] - Boil 60 min Hops 4
1 Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15 min) Misc 5
0.5 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [14.0%] - Boil 12 min Hops 6
0.5 oz Cascade [5.5%] - Boil 12 min Hops 7
0.5 oz Cascade [5.5%] - Boil 0 min Hops 8
0.5 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [14.0%] - Boil 0 min Hops 9
Dry hop with both cascade and columbus

Yeast 1056 or 1272


Will not clash with Columbus and Cascade.
Add it at 0 mins, or better yet, as part of the dry hop.

I would put some at 5 minutes and dry hop.

I’ve been mixing my hops in about equal proportions and using them all the way through. If you want to conserve the Simcoe, bitter with Columbus and then blend for late additions. Simcoe and Columbus are both piney but Simcoe has more of a dank citrus to it that goes well with the brighter grapefruit of Cascade and the straight pine of Columbus.
