Nah. Load that thing with hops. My last normal IPA had around 4oz just in the whirlpool. Shift more to whirlpool/steep hops for more impact. I notice a great effect with FWH, 10 minute add, 2...

I second a blow off tube. Last thing you want is yeast gumming up your airlock and blowing all over the place.

You can leave it on the cherries or rack off. Probably won't make much difference. Many sour brewers will leave the beer on the fruit for months. The cherries have already imparted just about...

Yup! Go for it! It will be like a low abv dubbel ipa? I do think it can be pulled off. Throw in some honey or candi syrup to boost the abv a bit and it should be a tasty Belgian.

I also throw the beans directly into secondary for about a week. 12 oz french press grind. It will add bitterness this way. I recommend 1 vanilla bean to combat it.
