I do not think that Gimp is the best tool for dealing with dotgain.

You should be working in CMYK and Gimp is a RGB editor. The amount of correction will differ between Cyan, Magenta and Yellow channels.

From the very little I know there are icc color profiles that apply the compensation.

and some profiles

Have you considered using Krita, which will open your RGB image, convert the color space and apply a profile.
