I typically start dry hopping at an estimated 2 points from FG - that is what Firestone Walker does and they make excellent IPAs/IIPAs.

I think they do that just to save a day or two waiting for FG. They are running a business,after all.

Not exactly - been a while since I listened, but on the CYBI podcasts Matt talks about the yeast interaction with the dry hops while there is still some fermentation going on producing something unique that you can't otherwise achieve - and of course the added benefit of the yeast absorbing any oxygen that isn't pushed out by CO2.

I've been doing it for a while and have had good results so I keep doing it, can't really explain it further though. Even when I rack to secondary to dry hop I do the same thing as far as gravity goes.

It could be that some of the hop oils coating the yeast & settling out mellows the dry hop down to where he wants it?...Large or small scale,the reactions are basically the same.
