I've done both before, 1 week at room temp with 1-2oz and then racked to keg on another 1-2oz. It was a great aroma but I can't honestly say if it made that much difference since I didn't keep any control samples

I might try the hop sock method as well because I did notice that the tea ball will only be able to hold 1 oz. or so. But I'll definitely be using some floss with it so I can fish it out if needed.
just make sure you leave enough length so that the bag can still sit on/near the bottom of the keg so its stays in contact with the beer - i think its unnecessary but can't hurt

Are these all pellet hops or whole hops in the kegs?

I've done both pellet and whole. The only issue with whole hops is the amount of space they take up in a bag , don't want to overfill it

When I use pellets I put them in a mesh bag.

When I use leaf, I put a screen on my dip tube; picked it up at my LHBS.

I usually get better clarity with leaf.

I do small FWH and 60 minute additions with a huge whirlpool with 20min hop stand addition. I usually FWH with .5 oz total in a 5 gal

I'm considering doing 1oz Columbus FWH and then 2oz Centennial only 30-45min hopstand/whirlpool for an IPA with an OG of 1.072. I'll then dry hop it with 1oz Cent, 1oz Chinook. Anyone want to talk me out of it?

Hey OP, did you ever try this beer? If so, how did it turn out?

Nope. Other beers and a move got in the way. I did however make a ryepa with simcoe, nelson, and citra that was delicious. We just kicked the keg and my girlfriend informed me that it will be the first beer I brew once we move later this week.

Once I get set up, I will have a lot of brewing to do, and a session IPA is definitely in the cards, and I will be using a FWH and whirlpool, but perhaps some other additions as well. I will let you know.
