The time listed in minutes is the amount of time you need to boil the addition. So 60 min means to boil it for an hour.

the first number in brackets is the AA or Aloha Acid amount that hop has, (it will be stated on the packaging)
the next number is when to add the hops 60 minutes is at the start of the boil, 45 minutes is 15 minutes later, 30 minutes is half way though the boil, 10 minutes is 10 minutes left in the boil. dry hops are added in the secondary fermenter. the last number is how much that addition of hops adds to the bitterness of the beer measured in IBUs or international bitterness units.

Hop additions are always listed as time in the boil.

So if you do a 60 minute boil(standard) and it says 60 minutes, that means as soon as your boil starts you throw those set in...then when its 15 mins in you throw the 45 minute hops in...repeat until boil is over...and since someone asked this before, no you dont remove the hops thats how long they stay in for the boil...you can strain them out at the end if you want but not necessary.

Ok So why does the one 60 min hop addition have (First wort hop) next to it and not the other 60 min hop addition. Just confusing!
