Default How to use Gelatin or other clarifying agent?

I have an APA that is dry hopping in the secondary. I forgot Irish moss in the boil and it could use a clarifying. I've never done this before so direction would be great! Thanks

Biotin? Will using a clarifier strip hop aroma imparted from dry hopping?

Some here will tell you gelatin fining agent will remove some of the Hop of the IPA.. Others will say it does not..
Read the replies, make a choice.

To use Gel, boil just over a pint of water to sanitize, let cool, add 1 tablespoon to 1 pint of cool water and gently heat until dissolved.. DO NOT Boil... Add to 5 gal beer. Allow several days for the gel to work.
