Default aroma hops and dry hopping.

So im putting a little amber ale recipe together. Im a bit of a hopphead so i figured id give dry hopping a try. My question is how much should i worry about my aroma hops if im going to be dry hopping the batch? Does anyone have much experience with this? any helpful hints?

0.75 lb Honey Malt (25.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)
0.15 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)
0.15 lb Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM)
0.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (Dry Hop 4 days)
1.00 oz Centennial [10.00 %] (60 min)
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (5 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep)
1.00 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 45.0 min)

In my english pale ale that I brewed about a week and a half ago, I added my regular aroma hop addition and then dry hopped about a week later with .5 oz of the hops I had left over from my first batch. I know that's not much help, but we'll see if it comes out alright. I'm actually going to take a gravity tonight, I'll let you know how it tastes.

I do not adjust late hop additions if I'm going to be dry-hopping (read: I keep late hop additions)

Having said that, odds are pretty good that any beer that I add hops in the last 5 min for...I also will dryhop :-D

Just took the gravity. It still needs a few more days. Target FG is 1.010, currently at 1.012. Anyway, to provide something more helpful to you, it didn't come out with as strong a hop taste as I had expected, but definitely more than before the dry hop addition. Also, I only used .5 oz of Fuggles, so maybe more might do the trick. I was thinking an extra ounce next time would work. And while we're on the subject of my beer, I took a pic because the color is just beautiful.

Nope. I didn't use anything but extract, crystal malt and hops. You can't tell very well in the picture, but it's really not that clear. I can't wait to see it when it is clear, though.

Hehe, that's not me, that's SWMBO. The little white thing at the bottom is the tips of a couple of my fingers holding the glass up.
