I've never used dry yeast before. The 11 gallon recipe calls for 1 pack of Nottingham. Will that be enough or do I need to make a starter with the 1 pack?

Your not supposed to make a starter with dry yeast ... (I have and it worked fine) mr malty.com has a yeast pitching calc....
Just rehydrate. And if biermuncher used one pack I would use one pack

I used 1, and dumped about half into each bucket. It worked fine.

I let this sit in the carboy for two weeks and three days. I also added enough water and boiled it for 90 minuets to get to the correct gravity. I adjusted my hop additions according to the boil. I took this out of the carboy last night and it was awesome. I could taste the citrus flavor balanced with the hops. It was really smooth no bite to it at all. I wonder if the 90 min of boil time made it smoother? I also cooled the wort with my plate chiller. I went from 212 degrees to 82 in 7 mins. I think that may have helped also.

I would say yes on your 90 minute boil. Boiling longer allows a more malty profile to come out. I use this when brewing styles that focus on malt and not hops. Of course the 90 minute IPA bucks this theory

Boiled per recipe for 60min with prescribed hop additions. Added 1 tab of whirlfloc at 15min left.

OG ended up at 1.040 (corrected). Looks like it should clear up nicely. The particulates were dropping out in the measurement tube.

Transferred 5gal into primary fermenter and pitched a small yeast starter of nottingham which I started last night (used 1pt of water with 1/2 cup of DME)
Ferment was done in 2 days. Just racked into secondary. FG = 1.008 on the dot. The uncarbed new beer tastes OUTSTANDING!

Wow my pipeline is low and this recipe may be perfect for a quick keg.
