I used WLP001 Cali Ale and my SG was low @ 1.062, but two days later I am at 1.010. I mashed around 149/150.

2 days? holy crap! That's pretty intense. That's the yeast I use all the time. May I ask your ferment temp? Was it carefully controlled?

i use a big starter, low mash at 148 or so and corn sugar around a pound.
i always get in range for final gravity.

First all-grain batch i went with a pliny clone. Racked to secondary just now and get a sg of 1.035 ( I know Its not done yet but havent seen any activity in a week. This is day 14 so I racked and dry hopped as prescribed. Using a refractomer so im pretty sure of sg. Will it come down? Is this to be expected? and how do I reach a lower FG in the future. I mashed at ~152 and then batch sparged with ~170 water.

Refractometers require a correction to compensate for alcohol.
