For the late addition of fresh hops (5 min) would it work better to rip the hops in half first?

Seems like 5 minute boil will not get much out of the fresh hops.

I know you are supposed to add 5-7 times more of fresh hops then dried. So you can get more out of it. Are you hoping to bitter with them or just add aroma and flavor?
