Your ears never lie. Use all the scales, modes, etc for reference, but focus more on what you hear and what you want to say musically. There is a lot to be said for the guys that can use any note effectively regardless of which note it is and which key you are in. Lots of blues work off of dorian, mixolydian, and the blues scale (flat 3rd, tri-tone, flat 7th). But it doesn't mean to not ever use the major 3rd or major 7th in a blues tune. It can be complicated in the early years, and it is certainly a never ending road of learning.
