Any shade tree carpenters here?

Is there a standard dimension when building a wooden gate frame to the corner posts?
I moved a wooden fence up in the side yard. The fence side I used 2 3/8 metal corner posts and attached a 2x4 to them and screwed 5.5" cedar panels. The other side is the house and there is a 11' opening from the corner post to a 8x8 upright that part of the garage wall. I want to build a 2 panel gate that hinges on the corner post and the 8x8 wooden upright.
I know I can just go to home depot but just curious if there's a standard for hinges. Thanks. Jim
