Double clutching won't hurt anything if you match the revs properly. The synchro's will last longer when downshifting because you're spinning up the gearset for them.
If it feels good to you and you like the increased smoothness, do it.

I learned on a BMW 2002 with totally used up synchro's so I've always double clutched on downshifts and also on upshifts when the tranmission oil is really cold and thick and if I want to use the brakes at the same time while downshifting I heel and toe.
