I imagine leaf hops means the same as whole hops. IE not pellets or plugs. They look like the hop in your avatar

The drop in temp will slow the ferment, but it may just have finished quickly because of the warm initial temps. We've had beers finish in under a week when it's hot. Certainly not ideal to ferment so hot, but they always turn out.

Well, I racked to secondary last night (2.5 days after pitching) because there was very very little activity in the primary. There is very little in the secondary, but I'll let it sit. It's only 4 gallons, by the way, in a 5 gal. fermenter. Lot of air space. Don't know what happened, I think my pot markings don't jive with my bucket markings. Anyway, any downsides to all that airspace in the fermenter?

Airspace really isn't a big deal. When the beer is fermenting, it quickly displaces the air with CO2.
