Keeping the dry hopped beer cold may help preserve the DH aroma.

IPAs were created specifically because including high amounts of hops and high alcohol content both help to extend the shelf life of the beer so they could survive the long trip from Britain to India in the days of Britain's colonial rule - hence their name. Hops have some natural antiseptic qualities that help to avoid spoilage, so there should be absolutely no problem with dry-hopping reducing the shelf life of a beer. And yes, the DH aroma dissipates continually over the course of time...so drink that IPA in your keg now!
