I was going to brew a big ipa and figured since I'm saving money by reusing the lager year I can justify adding more hops :-)

Have you dry-hopped in the keg before with that many hops? The most I've ever dry-hopped in the keg with was 2 oz. and it was intense. Usually I keep it to 1 - 1.5 oz. and the results are fantastic. Not suggesting that you not do it, just wondering if you've ever actually used that many hops in the keg.
