You could just dump the hops straight into the fermenter without a bag. Then rack the beer off to your bottling bucket. Remove the beer from the hops instead of removing the hops from the beer. Timing is the key here. If you want a 5 day dry hop and a 2 day cold crash, you need to add the hops 7 days before bottling day.

So if I dry hop 7 days in and dont get to bottling for another 2 weeks am I balling something up?

I have never attempted a 2 week dry hop at room temperature. I have at serving temperature and everything was fine. There is a substantiated fear of vegetal or grassy flavors attributed to dry hopping too long but I don't think 2 weeks is too long. Seems like several people have done 2 weeks with no problem here.

I read those posts, thanks. I like doing a month fermentation. That said should I be dry hopping the last week of the month instead of the second week?

That is what I would do (dry hop the last week before bottling).

Yes, put the hops in at the start of the last week, and bottle. I never bag my hops for dry hopping, just dump them in and then rack carefully.
