I just kicked a keg of Helles fermented with WLP940, great yeast! I pitched at 46°F and let it ramp up to 48°F for primary. I used this quick lager method and the beer was fantastic just 3 weeks later.
Those temps are close enough together that it really doesn't make much difference which you choose. If I had to choose, though, I'd go with the recipe. The temps recommended by yeast manufacturers are very approximate and often too high.
