Active dry and instant yeast interchangeable?

Hi there,
A few days ago I was ready to start a bread recipe and it asked for active dry yeast, I only have SAF instant yeast. So I called the K Arthur hotline to ask if it made any difference and she said that in home baking these 2 kinds of yeast are interchangeable 1:1. Until then I’d read everywhere that one needs to decrease the amount of instant by 25% when substituting for active dry.
Any comments?
