WLP001 from a 9% ABV IIPA with enough hop pellets in it to get me 216 IBUs?

1) Yes you can harvest. Not the best practice, but I bet you will not see any issues.

2) You think you have 200+ IBUs, but in reality, you are probably closer to 100. There is a limit to the alfa acids that can be dissolved in wort, and the fermented beer seems to hold less. 100 IBUs is still pretty high.

How many pounds of hops did you use?
