Default Cold Crash IPA

I dry hopped an IPA for the second time this past weekend and I plan to bottle this weekend. The IPA has been in secondary for 2-3 weeks (I think 3).

Would it be ok for me to put the carboy in a cold room (40-50 degrees) Thursday or Friday to clear it up? Or just let it sit as is, and hope it clears.

Thanks.

You can definitely rack by this point.

You can definitely cold crash if you are looking for a clearer beer. I always try to cold crash my IPA's in the fridge for a couple days before bottling. No issues whatsoever.

Well you're in the beginners brewing section so I imagine this is an Extract beer?

No need to cold crash...especially if you racked to secondary. Avoid agitation of the secondary and rack carefully... you'll be fine.

Cloudy IPA's give you more health benefits from the hops!
