I made a stone IPA clone and I have had it in the keg for way to long, I think its been almost 3 months now. My tastes changed for a while so I put the IPA in storage mode (took it off tap). The hops aroma is mostly gone now and I'm wondering if dry hopping with fresh hops would bring that back. Anyone try this before?

It should work. I know that sometimes Stone dry hops more than once.

I re-hop my IPAs after a couple months. A half-ounce is all it takes. I chill the keg to minimize foam-outs.

On my really big IPAs I do two dryhoppings. Once in the primary, and once in the keg during carbonation. Seems to really help bring in the hoppy aromas and flavors.
I imagine if you add hops at any time post fermentation or secondary you'll get some big hop flavors and aromas for a while after.
