Add the oak chips to the primary after fermentation is completed and allow one week on the wood. I used medium toast American.
This beer needs about 5 weeks in the bottle before it is really worth drinking. If you are kegging it be patient and let it condition.
You could probably use any hop for this, I like the flavor with Cascades and would probably also do it with Amarillo.
Another idea would be to buy a full pound of hops and dry hop with the remaining 2oz, though I didn't do it so I can't say what it would add.
