As a general rule, it is a bad idea to mix ammo types. With the Caracal, you should use bloodclaws/scourges unless you have a specific reason to use something else, because the Carcal gets a bonus to kinetic damage.
For NPCs, use the following:
Angels: Explosive (Pirhanas)
Sansha: EM (Sabretooths)
Blood Raiders: EM
Once you have Caldari Cruiser 5 (or Batlecruisers 5 for when you're in your Drake), you might as well just use Kinetics for NPCs. The small amount of extra damage you get for using EM missiles vs Sansha/Bloods isn't worth the bother of changing ammo IMO.

On a Kinetic bonused ship (Caracal, Drake), I use Kinetic missiles for everything other than EM weak NPC, as they tend to have a high Kinetic resist.
On a rate of fire bonused ship (Raven), all missiles get the bonus, so pick the one the NPC are weakest against.
