I found one issue with dry hopping is that it doesnt impart too much flavour when I do it and you have to leave it to set for some time.

dry hopping isn't for flavor or bitterness, it's mainly done to get good aroma. I've never had to go longer than a week and in fact, it's suggested NOT to go longer than that for fear of turning grassy.

I dry hopped for my first time and got great results! It smelled amazing and the body and test of the beer was awesome! I think I'm going to start dry hopping a lot more of my Pale Ales and IPA's!

The funny thing about dryhopping is that there are very little to no rules or guaranteed outcomes.

You may get both flavor and aroma or only aroma, you may dryhop for 3 days or 3 weeks, and you may get a citrusy/fruity character or percieve grassy/vegetal qualities. It all depends on the process and brewer perception.

Just a word of advice for the next time: if you're going to dry hop I'd wait longer than 4 days into fermentation. The yeast are likely still active, albiet sluggish, at this point, and they can and will consume of the hop compounds from your dry hop addition. I'd wait a minimum of 7 days just to be safe. YMMV

I agree with coy, even though most scientific data I've seen over the years has suggested primary fermentation is typically finished in 3-5 days on average. I usually further condition my beer and subsequently dryhop in the primary, so I always wait much longer than this to begin my dryhop (around day 14-21) and then bottle on day 31-34.

In my experience,only initial fermantation is done in the first few days. It then slowly,uneventfully ferments down to Fg ofer 2 or 3 weeks. I let it settle out clear or slightly misty before dry hopping one week.

Some people says that it is better to dry hop when the fermentation is near to the end, other suggest to put the hops when it slow down... In my expirience it's more important the amount of hop you use and the number of days... I usually dry hop for 5-7 days before bottoling
