Default Hop Spider!!

Took the plunge and started a video channel on youtube. First video is making a hop spider.


By no means my idea, saw one on youtube posted by jbrookeiv so I did one.

Planning on SS hardware as soon as I can stop by my nearest supplier.

Question,
When using brewing software like BeerAlchemy, BeerSmith, etc., how would you enter the format of hops when using the Hop Spider? Bagged or Loose?

My instinct is to enter them as bagged hops, but they have plenty of room of float around freely in the boiling wort when using the Hop Spider, so maybe I should calculate IBU as if they were loose hops.

Any insight?

I figure them as thrown in with no bag, the bag I use is pretty big and they have a good bit of room to move.
