You don't even have to wait for that, you can drink it warm and uncarbonated. Now, did you just want to drink beer or did you want to drink good tasting beer? You didn't tell us how long it had been in the fermenter of if it had been secondaried or even what kind of beer it was so how can we tell you when it will be good? I've had beers that were good to drink 3 weeks from pitching the yeast and some that took more than 3 months.

It says after dry hopping to let it sit seven days before bottling, so does that mean its ready for the keg seven days after dry hopping?

It's a black IPA, it's been fermenting for 10 days, I added dry hops 2 days ago(as the recipe said)

With the dark grains I'm going to suggest that a month in the keg will get you good beer. It may happen a little sooner or a little later.
