Yes, you can. Even a highly active yeast needs more than instant dry. I'd suggest 1.5 time more.

Interesting discussion of the difference here: http://www.thekitchn.com... I suspect that as long as you are going through the same proofing routine (2 rises) you should be fine. You may want to keep an eye on it though to prevent it from over-proofing. The time actually required may be different. :o)
