Do you then dry hop in the primary?

Yep. So far just toss the hops in. Haven't tried a bag to cut down on debris. I have strained dry-hopped beer into the bottling bucket though. Cut way down on hops in the bottles.

I use the bucket top strainers too... The 200 micron size is so fine you have to go slow, and gently scrape the filter to move the material, it clogs easily. This can be quite the handful if you still siphon from the kettle, but with a valve at the bottom with a dip tube, you can control your flow and you do not have to hold on to a racking cane and such. If you tried this with an IPA and a boatload of hops, there would be a lot of trub to deal with.

I also make sure to soak the strainer in star san for at least 15 min, ensuring 100% coverage to avoid infection...

Since I push through my plate chiller I really have no choice but to provide some filtration, in my case the wort flows through my hop quesadilla (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/hop-quesadilla-305073/)-> Inverted hop rocket full of leaf hops (http://thebrewingnetwork.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27788) -> pump -> pc -> fermenter.

By the time it hits the fermenter it's pretty clear.

How does this work filtering into a carboy? Looks like you have to pour into a 5 gallon bucket then transfer to carboy, right?

I ferment in a bucket because I hate the idea of a carboy.

If you're using a carboy, this is probably more work than it is worth.

I also use carboy fermenters. Using a 12 inch funnel, would this filter have a chance of working?

I use carboys as well and just put a stainless steel kitchen stainer inside the the funnel as I'm transferring from the kettle. It catches a bit of hops when I first open the valve. Most if the break and hops stay below the level of the valve.
