Default Zero minute hop addition... what to do?

Hey guys, I know everyone does things different, But I am interested in what people do for zero minute hop additions. Do you add the hops and immediately and start to cool your batch? I seem to recall commercial brewers would transfer to whirlpool at this stage. What do you guys think would work best and why?

I drop "zero" minute hops at the 1-2 minute mark. That way they've actually got a chance to dissolve in the boil before I fire up the counterflow chiller which works ridiculously fast.

I usually kill the heat, drop in the hops, let them steep for a minute or 2, then use an IC/whirlpool combo.

What about for those of us who do not have an immersion chiller (yet)? My running ice bath method takes about 30 minutes to bring down to cool enough temps to transfer to the primary, does that length of time at warmer temperatures have a significant effect?

according to ray daniels, hop oils are highly volatile, and alot can be driven off by the steam of the hot wort. but also the floral tasting compounds are accelerated in high temperatures. so the longer cool time might drive off oils, or might change the flavors a bit, but im guessing its nothin drastic. i used to add hops at flameout before i got a chiller and never had any bad results

I add my Zero hops at the 1 minute mark before flame out.

I have pretty much switched over to a dry hop in the secondary rather than a 0 minute addition. I believe that I end up with a better aroma and flavor.
