A question about a recipe: Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Bread

Oatmealbread2

I have a question about the ingredient "dry yeast" on the recipe "Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Bread" from WinnieAb.

It calls for 1 tbs dry yeast, but I only have 1 tsp left, plus a 2.5tsp packet of instant yeast.

1. Can instant and dry active yeasts be combined?

2. Would instant yeast fizzle and die before baking in this recipe?

I'd just use the instant yeast. You can generally get away with using less of it. Instant yeast is all alive, whereas active dry yeast has live yeast coated with dead yeast. Boulangere commonly recommends using half of the quantity of instant yeast to substitute for dry yeast, and that lady knows her bread!!!
