Default Late Hop Additions and/or Dry Hopping

Can someone enlighten me on hop additions. Looking specifically for aroma/taste hop flavours.
I know that adding the hops @ beginning of boil gets the bitterness. I got that. Now, what flavour does late hop and dry hop additions each impart to final product (brew). What else can you tell me about these two methods.

Anywhere from 20 minutes to the end of the hot boil, and after slight cooling when the wort is fairly warm but not scalding hot, and the dryhop.

Typically, the later you add your additions, the more hop character you'll have. Dryhopping tends to add the most aroma. But I would also look into the hopbursting technique and the warm aroma steep.
