Default Beginner Question on Pliny the Elder

Hello

I recently brewed 'Vinnie's Pliny the Elder' from morebeer.com and have a couple questions--

-The following instructions are given verbatim:

Bittering Hops boiled for 90 Minutes (Magnum)
Flavor Hops boiled for 45 Minutes (Simcoe)
Flavor Hops boiled for 30 Minutes (Columbus)

Aroma Hops are added at flameout (Centennial)
Aroma Hops are added at flameout (Simcoe)

For the bittering and flavor hops, do I boil them in the strainer bags?
For the aroma hops, do I use bags, or dump directly into wort after removing from flame?

Thanks for the help!

Either way is fine. Leaving them in the bags makes it easier to remove.

If I use bags for the aroma hops, how long do I leave them in for? There are no times listed for the aromas. Are these meant to be added directly in?

Leave all the hops in while you cool the wort. Flame out hops aren't boiled, they stay in the hot wort until the wort is cooled.
