Default Dry Hopping an IPA in the secondary, need to do anything to it?

I have a 5 gal batch of IPA that is dry hopping with an ounce of whole Amarillo hops. After fermenting in the primary for two weeks, I transfered to the secondary on top of the 1oz of whole hops (no bag, just free floating). Do I need to give the carboy a gentle swirl every couple days to make sure they get more utilized or just leave it alone?

Thanks

I'd give them a swirl in the beggining just to make sure they were moist, they'll be fine if u just leave them.
