Default woo hoo my first blowoff

brewed a NB Karls 90 and put it in a 5 gal carboy,I thought it looked a little small for a primary but it was all I had for a empty.
luckly I used a 1in blowoff tube and a 2 gal catch bucket because the tube is full of foam
at least it will get rid of some of the floating grain and crap

my blowoff bucket smells like hops,should I dry hop it after it settles down to replace hops lost in the bucket?

You can dry hop to replace previous "dry hops" that may have blown off, but AFAIK, there would be no science to how much to replace... I would not worry about it much, just my two cents.
