Heck, I had a dry hopped cider on Saturday (delightful).

I didn't mean to discourage you at all
No discouragement here, but I was thinking I should have maybe dry hopped an IPA for my first dry hop experience, oh well. I was also thinking of dry hopping a wheat beer with half ounce of lavender sometime, could be nice.

I dry hopped a Stone Levitation clone with 1.5 oz of Amarillo for 17 days and it picked up a veggie taste. It was bottled 3.5 weeks ago and the taste has calmed somewhat but it is still there. I think 7-10 days is ideal.

I usually dry hop 5-10 days depending on the hop and what I'm going for. Dry hopping won't add bitterness to the beer unless you leave some of the hop material in the beer.

I usually don't dry hop my cream ales but there's nothing wrong with it. But I'm one of the more liberal posters on here.
