I almost never transfer to a secondary (better called a "bright tank" or clearing vessel). I almost always dryhop in the fermenter a week before packaging the beer.

Yooper, I've had this at 61 to 63 for the primary 10 days. Tomorrow I will be dry hopping (in primary). It has gotten a bit colder in my basement. Would it be okay to move this into my house while dry hopping since primary fermentation is complete or will the higher temp still produce off flavors?

No, warmer is fine. 68 degrees is a great temperature for dryhopping!

Perfect, thanks Yooper. I usually keep my house at 68 when I'm home.

when dry hopping is it ok to just dump the hops into the already fermented beer without a bag (also using leafs instead of pellets). then just being careful when transfer to bottling bucket? or will this screw it up with a bunch of hops in the beer?

Yes, it's fine. Like you said, just be careful when racking out of the fermenter.
Cold crashing (if you can) helps drop the debris too

Its basically dropping the temp after fermentation is done. This will help clear the beer.
