I do so sometimes myself, it works.
I believe some older git versions refused to "git stash pop" if there
was any conflict between the stashed changes and the new source code
(I remember struggling with that myself the first time I tried git).
Current git versions will however apply the stash in case of conflicts
and mark those conflicts. The only thing it does now in case of
conflicts is not drop the original stash (i.e., "git stash pop"
behaves like a "git stash apply") so that you can easily apply it
again on a clean copy should you somehow mess up during conflict
