Whirlpool is referring to pumping your wort through or around a chiller at the end of a boil. you have the wort go through the pump and return to the kettle through an angled inlet so the wort in the kettle rotates like a whirlpool. this helps move wort over the chiller (if using an immersion chiller, this will speed up the chilling) and it helps sediment collect on the bottom in a nice little pile if done correctly.

Or, if you don't have a chiller, just a very basic setup, you can still whirlpool by using a spoon and stirring the wort to create a vortex, so the trub settles in the middle-bottom of the kettle in a cone shape. After it has a chance to settle, this makes it easier to siphon. I don't think the technique of "whirlpooling" is necessarily synonymous with having a coil or counterflow chiller.

Well today is the day I will finally be brewing this beer. I took the suggestions and tweaked to get my final recipe. Along with the grains in Tdoggs recipe I'm adding a bit of carapils and honey malt based off other recipes I found online.

The hops- I will be first wort hopping with cascade, the warrior at 60, a little more cascade at 45 then mixing 1/2 oz of simco, citra, and amarillo during the last 15 min to zero. Then I will whirlpool while chilling to pitch 2 packs of US-05. With 2 weeks left in secondary I will dry hop with 1/2 oz of simco, citra, amarillo and the remaining cascade.

If anyone is interested I will post the results and let you know. Thanks for the help and advice I really do appreciate it.

That doesn't seem like enough hops. 1.5 oz of hops late in the boil for 5 gallons? I'd do at least twice the late hops and dry hops. I do like hops a lot though.

You need to seriously up the late addition hops. My IPA uses around 5oz's in the boil and 8oz's for the dry hop. That's more to style.
