Default Dry Hopping and Kegging

Whats up Folks,
Ok, so I've heard a number of different techniques for dry hopping but I just did a 90 Minute IPA and the recipe briefly stated that you should dry hop in the keg...(5 gallon cornelius keg, extract beer, clone of 90 minute dogfish head)
Does anyone know if you prime the keg during the time in which you dry hop? Or should I dry hop the keg, take out the hops and then prime it....?
Suggestions anyone?
Thanks and Cheers
Brian

I primed mine with the dryhops in. Make sure your bag is fine mesh, other wise you will have hop particle floaties in your beer.

I just drop a LARGE SS Nut into the hop bag with the hops and toss it in the keg. Chill/Carb/serve as normal.

I like the zip tie idea though.

Anyone want to see my nuts?

I alternate between in the primary, in the keg with a bag tied to the lid, and zip ties. I have a hard time with the zip ties doe to my hand hands and fingers inside the keg even just near the opening so I tend to use the hanging bag method or primary or both!
