There are a lot of threads in this forum on dry hopping in the keg. Search and you'll find a lot of information.
I dry hop in the primary using an extra fine nylon bag weighted with a stainless steel bolt. I'll let it go for 1-2 weeks, add hops for 7-10 days then rack to keg. You'll find a lot of opinions on time to dry hop when in the keg. Some say it takes longer for the flavors to seep in due to lower temp. Lots of people appear to leave the.hop bag in keg for 2-3 weeks then remove. That is assuming that the keg is at serving temperature.
