Make sure it's rigged right for the one you're doing.
If you go up on the port halyard it has to come down on starboard gybe.
Go up on starboard halyard, it comes down on port gybe.
If the block is above the forestay it does not matter which tack you raise on. I would prefer to use you method if there are two spin halyards.

However, if you douse on the opposite tack to the one on which you raise, you must move the dousing line around the forestay to get the bag down.
