Default Dry Hopping with Cascade

I did an Mini Mash "APA" using this recipe:

2.25# 2 Row Base Malt
1.00# Crystal Malt 40L
Mashed at 155F
5# Extra Pale LME
Added @ 30 mina
1 OZ Magnum Pellets @ 60 mins
1 OZ Cascade Pellets @ 15 mins
1 OZ Hallertau Pellets @ 5 mins

And am considering a two week dry hop with two ounces of Cascade Leaves. Too much?

It isn't too much to me. Tonight I will be dry hopping 2 oz of Cascade to an APA I am fermenting. I wait two days after moving to the secondary and add the dry hops. I then hold them in the secondary until I am ready to rack. I always use whole hops. I end up with a pretty hoppy tasting/smelling brew. I have never had complaints. The only thing that I would note is that if I use two oz I like to secondary in a 6 gal carboy. In the past I have had some brews where the addition of the dry hop in a 5 gal caused a substantial release of CO2 and I ended up having to put a blow off tube on the secondary. I went to the 6 gal and have never had the problem. I have had a lot of CO2 production but never so much that it was blowing out of the top of the carboy and causing me to switch back to the blow off.

2oz of Cascade too much? Nah.... 2oz is about the smallest amount I dry-hop anymore. Even if the recipe calls for less.....

Is there really any such thing as too much hops anymore?

If some is good, then more is better - and too much is not enough. Do it.

I always dry hop now with 2oz, but for only 1 week. Never tried two weeks but:
A: I ferment in a plastic bucket, dont keep it in there any longer than I have too.
B: Have heard you may get Vegetable flavours if you dry hop too long (the lower end indicates 2 weeks +).

Maybe I'll use the Citra in this APA and the Cascade in an up coming IPA?

We dry hopped a 8 gallon batch with 2.5oz of whole leaf cascade for 2 weeks and the beer was great! No vegetable flavors at all.

I recommend dry hopping with more hops for less time. 2oz sounds good. Look for 5-7 days of contact time. Helps keep away any grassy flavors
