ADL5801-LO and RF Input Capacitor

Should the AC coupling capacitors used at the input of Mixer (or any RF component in this case), should be of RF grade, or can we use normal X7R capacitors? With X7R, at the desired frequency of operation, the capacitor will act as Low pass Inductor. Will it cause any effects on system?
