Well, %AA by weight will obviously go up as you remove moisture from the weight side, but I wouldn't call that making the hops more potent. It's certainly not going to change the chemistry. About the only things you can do to alpha acids is to degrade them through heat and/or oxidation. Can't make them stronger...
