OK, racked to secondary after 7 days in primary. FG=1.013 Down from 1.065, so about 6.8% ABV.

Hydro sample was pretty good. Not as bitter as I feared, though quite bitter enough for me. Some Amarillo-style grapefruity flavors. Trying to decide whether or not to dry-hop. Will give it another taste after a week in secondary and decide.

I highly recommend dry-hopping it. The Amarillo aroma is outstanding!

Morebeer.com has free shipping for orders over $60, so I recommend buying from there and getting enough for two batches instead of one.

For hops I usually use hopsdirect.com and buy in bulk.

I took your advice and threw in 1/4 oz of Amarillo Pellets (in ~4 gal). My intention was to dry hop for only 4-5 days, but those disintegrated pellets are taking their sweet time sinking... Is some extra dry hop time going to hurt? I purposely used a relatively small amount.

I always use whole hops for dry hopping and they never seem to drop to the bottom, I just rack from between the hops and the trub.

I typically dry hop for 7 days, but have have left them in for nearly 3 weeks without any ill-effects.

Thanks! Whole hops probably don't fragment like pellets.. I think there is enough suspended hop material to make it impossible to get between the hops and the trub without picking up some particulates. Will give it more settling time...

Yeah, I would give it a few more days to see. If that does not settle it you could try cold crashing it, or place a hop/grain bag over the end of your racking cane to act like a filter... I have never been too careful about it, I always heard if you get hops in the bottle its good luck

I made this recipe and dry-hopped with 1oz of Aramarillo and 0.5oz Cascade. At 14 days is if fantastic.

The grain bag on the racking cane worked fine. Dry hopped with a relatively small amount (0.25 oz) for 10 days. When I bottled it was apparent that I only had 3 gal instead of the 4 I thought I started with. I THOUGHT the carboy looked a little too empty. I cannot quite figure this out as I hit the gravity I had calculated for a 4 gallon batch. Pretty much use the OG as a guide more than calibrating my carboy volumes. I guess I have to recheck my spreadsheet for errors..

I may have over-primed somewhat for an IPA, as I calculated for 4 gal (3 oz by weight of Dextrose) but it should be OK. Hydro sample tasted pretty good...not overly bitter as I feared.

Looking forward to cracking open a bottle when the yeasties finish their work on the priming sugar!
