do it, dry hopping is one of its best uses. it has a tropical fruit like aroma. are you dry hopping with anything else? 1oz is pretty lite for a IIPA
I also Have 1oz each of Warrior, Chinook, and Cascade on hand too. Any combination suggestions?

The amount of hops for dry hopping will depend on the variety of hop, it's potential aroma, and the type of beer you are dry hopping. I found 1/2 ounce of Citra gave my APA lots of aroma. A second try with Citra and Cascade (1/2 oz Citra at 10 minutes, 1 oz Cascade dry hop) gave me similar amount of aroma but a completely different flavor. If it were an IPA I might use a bit more but not too much more.

2oz PA, 3-4 IPA, 4-6 IIPA, dry hopping is the best part of brewing!

I just added 1/4 oz hallertauer to my sam adams clone and it was plenty to give that SA aroma. Amazing what a difference a little bit does.

Here's a good general guideline for IPAs that hasn't steered me wrong:

Regular IPA: 0.25 to 0.50 oz. per gallon beer.
Imperial IPA: 0.50 to 1.00 oz. per gallon beer.

Most of my Regular and Imperial IPAs are dryhopped between 0.50 and 0.70 oz. It also depends on flameout hops.

Examples:

Stone IPA = 0.30 oz. per gallon
Stone Ruination = 0.40 oz. per gallon
Pliny the Elder = 0.75 oz. per gallon
Pliny the Younger = 1.00 oz. per gallon

My IPA equates to 13g per gallon. I agree that anything less than 2oz doesn't do it for me. I never dry hop less than 10 days. I raise temp to 70 and usually go 14 days.

Why such a long, warm dry hop?

My imperial that I was originally asking about when I started the thread came through great for a first batch. I settled on 2oz total one each of citra and cascade full cone. I just chucked them in there on top. Alot of them didn't sink but it still tastes pretty delicious.
