Well, if you would normally use 1 ounce, or 5 ounces or whatever in a 5 gallon batch, then you would use 1/5 of that.

Usually 1.5 ounces. I've done two ounces of leaf to get some knockout aroma and flavor...one of my best brews

Love it!!
I brew stove top using the BIAB method, brewing either 1 or 2 imperial gallons at a time. I then tend to bottle in some killer 750ml swingtops that I've got. It means I get through the beer pretty quick, but the main reason for brewing small batches is so I can brew more often and try more recipes out.

Nice, can you do it in the primary? I'm afraid of losing beer at the bottom if I transfer to a secondary.

For IPAs and other hoppier brews I tend to add 14 to 21 grams, but I have added 28 grams to a double IPA and it turned out very nice with some great aroma. If you use pellets you don't have to worry about loosing too much beer, just account for it in your boiling volume and you are all set.

I actually don't use an airlock for my 1 gallon batches. First time I did one, I forgot to get a stopper so I just used sanitized foil. After it worked fine, I just kept doing that and have never had an issue. (knocking on wood)

Quick question (or two).

The norm seems to be that brew ingredients are scalable. If you're using a 1/5 of the ingredients, does that also mean fermentation (both primary and secondary) would also be 1/5 as long compared to a 5 gallon batch of the same thing? I don't expect the fermentation time to be exact, but assume it wouldn't take as long as a 5 gallon batch would. What about boil times? Would it still be for 60 minutes or is it not as long since you have a smaller amount of ingredients in a smaller amount of water?

Sorry if this is off topic.
