I've dry hopped in the primary. It works good, just make sure you are at FG before you dry hop.
Someone here suggested that instead of trying to save part of the yeast cake and do yeast washing that you take a part of the original yeast source and make a starter with that to save as you wouldn't have to wash it and worry about mutations.
