Default Dry hop pellets, how long before packaging?

This is my first time dry hopping with pellets. No bag, and in a glass carboy. After a week, most if it is still floating on top.
Should I wait to see if it will fall, or rack out from under it?
I don't want to go any longer than 10 days total before packaging.

Just tie a hop sock over the end of your racking cane/auto siphon & rack from under it.
