This belgian wheat ipa will be my 4th batch overall (5gal), but my first ipa. First of all i was wondering if i can dry hop this beer and if so what would be my best options for hops? the flavor hops that i used in the boil were a half oz. of saaz and halleratu at 30 min. and another half oz. of the same two at 15 min. im wanting to go for more flavor than anything.

Fermenting: Group brews: ESB; Nut Brown; Strong Ale [8/22 brewday]
Bottled/Kegged: None
On Deck: Porter? I hardly know her [9/5 brewday]

Thinking about racking to a secondary? Read this first.

Magnum might be a good candidate.
Bottled: Old Freckled Men, Berlin Mart Cider, Creamer Ale II
English Mother****er, Do You Drink It Pale Ale
C4 Pale Ale (Centennial, Challenger, Cascade, Citra hopburst)

Gone: Honeybadger Wheat Ale, Bad Amba Jamma, Badder Amba Jamma, Slam Dunkelweizen, Creamer Ale I, Robust Porter

I just dry hopped a similar beer with Galaxy hops and I was very happy. They have a nice crisp hoppiness that is not overpowering. I think I used Australian Galaxy.
