Yes. You will get more hop flavor out of your bittering hops. You will also get a smoother less harsh bitterness.

Me too. I make a ton of APAs and IPAs and ambers, and FWH all of them.

Yooper, do you have a 60 minute addition also? Or do you calculate to get the bulk of your IBUs from the FWH?

IIRC, FWH is pretty equivalent to a ~20 minute addition?
