Default FWH value in Beersmith

Don't know if this has been asked before - when doing first wort hopping do I use the 60 minute boil option? I know I can chose FWH but it still requires a time in boil value. Only reason I ask is because somebody said to change that to 20 min, which I don't believe is correct. The total IBUs plummet down in that case.

Ok, never mind. Got my answer after Googling the question and seeing the following response from a board admin named Brad at Beersmith:

"Enter the boil time - as this is the time it will be actively boiled. During the steep portion not much of the alpha acid is converted."

So I'll keep the boil time as 60 min.
