While this doesn’t absolutely verify that the US was going to use gas against Japan, this sort of confirms that the US was at least preparing to "retaliate in kind" if the Japanese had decided to use chemical weapons when the Allies invaded the home islands.

Chemical weapons dumped in deep water five miles south of Pearl Harbor after World War II should remain at the site because moving them could pose more of a threat to people and the environment, the Army said Friday.

Records show the Army dumped 16,000 bombs at the site after the war; each of the bombs contained 73 pounds of the chemical agent mustard.
