additions for a 5 gallon batch:
Cascade hop addition at start, 20
grams of 6.4% alpha
Nugget hop addition at start, 9 grams
of 14.5% alpha

After attenuation, proceed with dry hopping was at ~22 grams hops/gallon beer in the following ratio:
For the hop additions, you can increase/decrease the mass of hops added with a direct ratio of whatever percent alpha you end up actually using. For instance, if you find Cascade at 7.2% alpha, then you’d drop the size of the addition as follows: 20g X (6.4/7.2) = 18g.
