Default Dry-Hopping

After a week I racked my beer into a secondary fermenter and I threw in some Willamette hops pellets to dry-hop. For how long should I dry-hop?

I agree, I would leave it in for atleast 10, if not 14 days. But I can't really talk, my last batch has turned to bitter water and I figure out why...But the only thing I would say, looking at your recipe, there might not be enough malt in it and you might experiance my current problem. Best of luck!
