How many oz do you dryhop?
 
I'm thinking 2 oz for about a week for a red ipa. Itd'd be 1 oz CTZ and 1 oz of falconers pellets

What about you guys?

It really depends a bit on how much aroma you already have left from your late kettle additions, and how much aroma you are looking for. For a typical 5 gallon batch IPA, I'd say between 2 and 4 ounces is about average for a dry hop, and a week to 10 days.

We used 2oz of cascade pellets in a 10g batch and let them sit for 5 days, which was nice. Right now we are finishing up a 10g batch of a rye IPA and we used 2oz of chinook and an ounce of amarillo. So we'll see how that goes.
We have been using a lot of late additions as of, well, late, so our beers have had great aroma.

I have 1oz of whole citra hops I'm thinking about dry hopping an imperial IPA with. Any thoughts, experience with citra as a dry hop?

usually do 1-2oz in a PA, 2-4oz in an IPA, 3-6oz in a IIPA

do it, dry hopping is one of its best uses. it has a tropical fruit like aroma. are you dry hopping with anything else? 1oz is pretty lite for a IIPA

+1. I also give my secondaries a swirl every morning and night to get the hops back into the wort while dry hopping.

I love centennial hops .....

+2. I used to just use 1 oz in my IPAs, once I stepped up to a 2 oz minimum they got a lot better IMHO.

I think anything under 2oz is a waste of time for an American style beer.
