Chuck, I got back into serious printing not all that long ago and started with MGIV glossy, in Dektol 1:2, just like you. My enlarger is a DeVere 504 with colour head (don't know if that compares to your LPL). In any case, I like the paper a lot but found that the results from selenium 1:9 were quite minimal. Other folks in this forum have found that too. However, the warmtone version of that paper tones beautifully, but then, i rather like the slightly purplish tone. To each their own. I also tried selenium 1:3 and that made the warmtone look like it had been soaking in cheap wine for a week.
