Since it's generally milder than chile pepper or cayenne pepper, you would need to reduce the amount from the amount of Aleppo called for. You will also lose the smokiness.

A Spanish pimenton de la vera would work or piment d'esplette. Supermarket paprika would be a very bad idea; save that for deviled eggs. But as we don't know what dish this is going into it's hard to be more specific.
