Absolutely.  I use Red River papers exclusively.  I printed initially only dye inks on several of their papers with nothing untoward happening.  But when I got the pigment-based 3880 and tried printing on the previous paper..........complete mess!  I looked on the Red River site and sure enough they list the compatibility of their papers with various dye or pigment inks.  it all has to do with the absorbency/drying time of the top emulsion.

Also, on the Printfab utility they have a ink density utility whereby you can control the amount of ink applied, to the point that it comes off the printer still wet and drying.....and adjust back to just get it dry, and that becomes part of your paper-specific profile.
