Best part about dry hopping is you can decide if you need it at the end of fermentation

I would guess that based on your higher OG, and the fact that you have a bunch of Nugget at 90 minutes, the bitterness and higher alcohol might benefit from a little dry hopping?

Yes I will definitely be dry hopping, I love the fresh hop aroma it provides in an IPA or Pale Ale.

UPDATE:

One of the best beers I've ever made! I'm surprised by how much chocolate porter taste I get up front but then it hits you with big IPA flavor at the finish. If I close my eyes and drink this it tastes much less like a porter. Amazing what your mind does to you when you expect something to taste different than it does!

This finished at 8.0% ABV. Going to be a hit at the Christmas festivities.
