i don't bother with secondary. i can get plenty of dry hop flavor and aroma in primary. i've actually been comlimented on this quality of my beers by people much more experienced than myself. two weeks in primary then straight to keg.

Because you like the flavor better that way. Either way works just fine and will produce similar results - but there will be differences. Many prefer the primary only, and others might like the flavors of a secondaried beer a bit better, but don't want to deal with the extra work, and other still prefer the secondaried version's flavor and are willing to do the extra work.

It is your beer, let your taste buds decide how you want to ferment your beer

And for some, their secondary fermenter may just be letting rest in the bottling bucket a few days before bottling time
