Default IPA help

May be too late for this batch...
I'm only a few batches in but tried my first all grain batch. Citra double IPA clone. Came close to the target og but had rinsed the grains with a little to much water so more beer but lower gravity. It is bubbling nicely now.
How do you deal with the sediment from hop pellets when transferring to primary. Should I have let it settle more? Or should i just pour it all into the primary rather than trying to siphon it? I was even thinking of pouring to a carboy overnight and transferring to primary in the morning after it has settled.
I wouldn't even bother asking but the sample tasted so good to stay with I have to try it again but want to be better prepared for the sediment.

I pour my cooled wort through a SS strainer into my primary catching most of the gunk. This also aerates the wort. I then follow that up with some pure oxygen.

Ever since I've started doing this my yeast always takes off within 8-12 hours.

I ended up using a ss strainer to get as much as I could but even that kept plugging up.

When brewing something hoppy, I strain with my ss strainer. When it starts to slow down, I use my stir paddle to push the gunk around, clearing small spaces as I go. The incoming wort certainly goes to the newly cleared paths preferentially, so they reckon quickly. After it gets to be too big of a pain I turn off the valve, knock the hop gunk off against my garbage can, give it a quick rinse in the sink, and re-sanitize before going back to strain more wort.

Works well for me.

From the kettle through the chiller into a 7 gal bucket lined with a large paint strainer bag...

Your beer will be fine. Plenty of people have brewed with all the gunk in the beer.

FWIW, I also use a metal strainer to get the hop goo out.

This at least had helped me figure it or better. My other batches had not prepared me for this.
#1 Belgian Trippel (brewer's best kit)
#2 Sweet Cider
#3 Berry flavored Ale (still getting fruit right in secondary)
#4 Imperial Coffee Oatmeal Stout (bottled today)
#5 Citra Double IPA (will try again even if something goes south on this batch)
