I did just read this and I think for my next batch this is what I'm going to try to do:

I put a paint strainer bag over my bucket and a large metal strainer on top of that. Beers with a lot of hops will clog the paint strainer bag so I use sanitized brewing gloves to squeeze the last couple gallons of wort out of the bag. I tried siphoning it once with two paint strainer bags on the end of the siphon. It clogged really bad and ended up being more of a hassle than the other way.

For this, and other Imperial IPAs, this is probably better to have two layers of filtering.

Frankly it's probably not a big concern.

I read an article about separating the trub vs not, I think on reddit?? Anyways, I can't find the link for it now. There were BJCP certified tasters in a scientific head to head tasting of two identical pale ale beers brewed identically except for separation of trub. The results were that the tasters had a slight preference for the one with no trub separation.
You can use hop sacks if you like to contain the hop mass. Very easy.
The break material is difficult to separate without a proper whirlpool.
I always worry about the auto-siphon being contaminated so I'd never want to use it on fresh wort, but given the two options, I'd siphon because it's easier, assuming you can get a stainless racking wand primed.
