Default hop question

I am brewing this recipe tomorrow and it is my first AG with more than a couple of hop additions. I have never dry hopped anything before. At what point do I add the 3 oz of citra as a dry hop? As soon as fermentation starts or do I wait a couple of days? Maybe use a secondary and add them then? Am I better off using a hop bag for this or not? Thanks in advance.

Wait until fermentation slows, then add, you'll get better utilization. No hop bag necessary.

Wait until your fermentation has reached final gravity, then dry hop 5-7 days. I prefer using hop bags. You scoop the bag out once you're done dry hoping and wring it out with clean hands. You let it sit for a bit, cold crash if you can, and you're left with nice clear beer to bottle or keg. Those that keg will sometimes dry hop in the keg as well. I bottle my beer, and when I add the loose leaf or pellet hops, I loose more beer than when using the hop bags.

Personally, I like blending hops, but I won't try to sway you from trying what you want to do with this all Citra beer.
