Not dry hopping an apa or ipa is like custom building a 1992 Geo Prism drives okay, but why would do something so stupid?

Just drank the first I've had of my first IPA. All Simcoe (60, 30, 10, 5, 0 - 5oz in the boil) and I put 3oz dry hop. Super aroma and just enough of a bite to know it's an IPA. Delicious

That's what I was after, so it wasn't really a waste
Although I am not a big fan of Cascade as a dry hop everyone's perception is different. I am glad you got what you wanted out of the half ounce.

So a little got more and more I just keep trying to get a little better a little better of Hops and more......

On Tap:Pale Ale, English Bitter

I am decreasingly impressed with dry hopping to add aroma since I began using significant late flavor/aroma additions. Those late additions give me more perceived aroma (as judged by smelling the carboy) than before I used late additions. I still go with a 2 oz dry hop for my IPAs but need to try a split batch to compare.
