Pace it however you need to. I had a similar goal from Denali Park to my home which is 130 mi. and I figured I could do it if I kept my heart rate reasonable with a reasonable effort on the flat sections which is exactly what I did. I was nearly 10 hours in the saddle but it was a great accomplishment. At some point speed may become a goal but I can only do what I can do and I'm quite happy with that. Go for the century whenever you are ready.
btw...my first ride after getting back to biking was well under 5 mi and I was hurting after that...so you're ahead of my curve!
