Default Advice from hop heads please

Brewed my first IPA. I used all cascade hops. I want to dry hop and I have.
1oz centennial i think around 6 AA.
I have 1 oz of summit at 13 or 14 AA.
And about 23 oz cascade 6.2AA.

My question is would 1 oz of summit at 14AA and 1oz contennial along with 1 or 2 oz of cascade be good on a dryhop? Im looking to do around 3 or 4 oz for dry hop.

Ive never used summit, but i'd start with an ounce each of centennial and cascade for the dry hopping. What was your hop schedule during the boil?

Dry hop with at least 3 oz. I'd just stick with cascade at this point. What was the recipe?

I like the combo of Centennial and Cascade in dry hops but they're similar aroma profiles with Centennial usually being about double AA%. Since you have so much more Cascade, I'd throw in four ounces or so and let it ride for 5-7 days. I find it helps to swirl your carboy every day or so to get all that hoppy goodness into your beer, especially if using whole hops, just be sure that you have a blanket of CO2 on top before you start swirling--you don't want to oxidize that good beer...

AA doesn't really matter for dry hopping.

Since you only used cascade in the boil I would go for cascade the whole way through. Mixing in the centennial wouldn't hurt though.

Sounds great, I'm curious about the orange peel. I think [cram] has a good point about keeping it a single hop effort, although hopheaded fool that I am I would throw it all in. Please let us know how the orange peel works out.

Yeah im wondering myself, i only used half the pack brewers best sweet orange peal (dryed) i used half oz instead of 1oz.

I was thinking keepibg it all cascade, but also if i dry hopped it with something else itll have a different nose to it.

I tasted it last night already got my fg after 8 days 05 yeast is a beast. I did not not taste the orange peel. Maybe later when the brews more mature.?

I dont know that the orange peel will come through. It wasnt a big amount and there's a bit of hops it would have to get past. Maybe just a little bitterness instead of flavor from the orange peel. US-05 is my go to yeast for 90% of my brews, love the stuff!

If you only used a half ounce you will likely not taste anything after the beer is finished and carbonated. If you do taste anything it will be very subtle and will fade quickly.
