I'm making a black ipa today, and I'm using dehusked Carafa III. Some people say to mash it along with the rest of the grains for the full 60 mins I'm doing, and others say to do it only the last 15 mins. I figured, since they're dehusked, that I can do it the full time, or maybe 30 mins?

Any suggestions?

It's a Stone 11th Anniv/ Sublimely Self Righteous Clone FWIW

I mashed mine for the full 60 and have a very noticeable/up front roasted flavor in the IPA. It's actually the way I wanted it, but not necessarily what most people are after.

Either that, or some folks just cold steep it for the color.

I've mashed 60 min and added the last 10 minutes of the mash. IIRC, there was only a slight difference between the two. This time I elected to mash the entire 60 minutes because the flavour differences were marginal. In this beer, I used Amarillo/Simcoe. I think those hops complement the more roasted flavors
