HMC1082 Maximum Ratings

Reading the HMC1082 datasheet I could not find the maximum ratings for the gate voltage, only the suggested range from -2V to zero in which the Idd can reach 220mA. 

I'm following this procedure to turn on the amplifier with the minimum noise produced on the output:

- Set the gate voltage to a high negative level

- Set the drain voltage to the operating tension

- Raise Vg to the operating level

Is this procedure correct or needed at all? If so, for the first step I need to know what the correct level is, -2V or higher?

Thank you all in advance for any feedback,
