I recently did this with a DIPA w/ 7oz of dry hops. Crash cool for 3 or 4 days, gets the yeast/trub cake nice and compact. Transfer to keg and throw your dry hops in there in a hop bag. They'll fit no problem and you'll basically have zero sediment from crash cooling!
I purged my keg and then sealed it with 30psi and left in a corner of my keg room at ambient temp. I check the relief every few days to confirm it still has pressure, man what a sweet smell!! Will probably put it in the fridge after 10 days.
