Well, I use a plate chiller so I need to be extra careful about hops. I've tried a couple batches just tossing them in there and trying to do a ghetto whirlpool by just stirring the wort and letting it settle which worked ok. I think however I'm going to go back to the hop bag.
Last time I used a bag for boiling hops it got really nasty and clogged up after a bunch of uses. You could lift it up and it would hold wort which would slowly seep out. Not sure if it was the type of bag I used but I'm going to get a new one specifically for hops just to make sure I don't ruin my BIAB bag.
