Default First time Dry Hopping

Getting ready to dry hop here in a couple days after I transfer into my glass carboy. I've seen a couple techniques mentioned...

1) drop the pellets in on top of the beer after it's been transfered.

2) put the pellets in the carboy first, then siphon your beer into the carboy.

Any recommendations on which way to do it?

My personal preference is to put the hops in first then rack on top.

Yeah, what he said ^^ but dont overfill your secondary. First time I dry hopped, I filled the secondary pretty full and then lost a cup of hops and beer because I didnt leave enough headspace.
