Did you do secondary aging? Currently I plan on brewing an IPA with a 100%brett b fermentation within the next 3 to 4 weeks. I am leaning towards an all Citra and have played around with the idea of mangos in the secondary. Your thoughts and input would be greatly appreciated.

You should try reading the mad fermentationist blog. Most of your technical questions can be answered there.

Also not sure on the fruit since you'd probably want to get most of the hop aroma as soon as possible but there are claims that suggest otherwise.

No secondary - I left this in the primary for a while and cold-crashed, so it had no problem clearing-up. I wanted to re-use the cake for another beer, too.

themadfermentationist's blog is a great resource.

Regarding the comment about hop aroma, I agree. I would not hop this beer to death if you are planning on adding fruit to it. If one adds too much fruit, you will simply ruin the beer and most of the hops you've added will go to waste. If adding fruit, don't over-do it.
