Default Hop Flavor + Dry Hopping = what?

Curious to hear from those of you who dry hop a lot in IPAs etc what you get out of dry hopping? To this point I have only dry hopped one beer but have yet to take a sip to see what it's all about because it's still bottle conditioning.

If you made a simple IPA

8lbs 2 row
2lbs vienna
1lb carmel 20

.5oz summit 60 mins
.5oz summit 10 mins
1oz amarillo 5 mins

Then toss in an Oz of Summit for dry hopping.

What would this beer have been without the dry hop and what did it become after the dry hop?

Thanks!

Also does dry hopping make an IPA more or less bitter?

dry hopping adds hop aroma, but not bitterness. YOu need heat to extract bittering acids from hops.

None of the above. Same bitterness. I get aroma and some flavor contribution, but not the same flavor as hops late in the boil. More grassy usually.

Agree with the last two replies...with that said, if you really like that hop punch in the face when you drink a quality IPA, you're definitely going to want to be a lot more aggressive than a single ounce in 5 gal batch. My minimum is 4oz... 2-3oz still produces some pretty good results though.

As for bitterness, you won't really get any with dry hopping and only a very small amount when steeping. Yes, heat is needed but so is the roll of the boil for isomerization of the AA to take place.

thanks for the replies - Another example

IPA again using:

8lbs Crisp Marris Otter
2lbs vienna
1lb caramel 10

1oz summit 60mins

at 10 mins left in boil drop 1oz each of Centennial, Amarillo, Cascade

then dry hop 1 oz of each as well.

Would this beer be ridiculously good or ridiculously earthy, piney, grassy?

Sounds GREAT. Amarillo will complement the grassiness/pineyness of the other 2 in the dry hop. Go for it, and send me one
