Not the same, it takes more whole hops to equal 1 oz of pellets. This is where brewing software is valuable. If you know the target ibu's, it's just a matter if changing the amount to reach the targeted ibu.

I am not so advanced. Is there any kind of general rule of thumb, say 1.5 oz leaf equals 1 ounce of similar AA pellets? Someting like that? I am trying to learn as much as possible, but at the same time INTENTIONALLY keeping myself from getting TOO technical or scientific just yet you know? Thanks again!
