Not the genoa, it's too big. Especially with an assymetrical spinny.
But a working jib? yeah, on a beam reach in light air, or a fairly tight broad reach in moderate air. That's when you still have "sideways" airflow over your sails and the jib can 'fit into' some air the spinny isn't using. Any lower than that and it's "push" air, jib won't help and may hurt.
