I don't worry about primary vs secondary. I just think the pics are cool. I'm thinking of getting another glass carboy to use as a primary just so I can watch the fermentation process.

I brew my beer my like I drink it, without worries.

Nothing wrong with the way the OP does this, but I'm impatient and want to be drinking a hoppy beer by week 3 or 4. I simply primary (usually for 5-10 days - 14 is pretty much my max and that's if I'm doing a couple doses of dry hops), add pellet dry hops to primary or secondary (depending on the recipe) and 3 days before kegging cold crash in my 35F freezer. With careful racking you'll leave 99% of the hop/trub material behind. I'll usually let the keg sit for 1-2 weeks, carb over the course of a couple of days and then start drinking. After a week you might end up with a small amount of hop material in your glass if you dry hopped, but By week 2 in the keg I find them to be quite clear, brilliant by week 5 or 6. I've used this method with WLP002 and WLP001 with similar results (WLP002 clears a little faster).
