Does anyone know how long I should leave a black IPA in secondary (I want to do some dry-hopping before bottling too, I don't know if that affects the equation)?

As well, this is my first beer and I would love any suggestions that anyone has for priming before I bottle that only involve yeast and additional sugars.

Thanks a bunch!

Dry hop when fermentation is done.(Gravity readings 3 days no change)Or eyeball it.Its what i do
Dry hop in primary no need to move... Unless your reusing yeast..
And dry hop for 7-14 days... The more hops you use the longer..
I kiddd,I kiddd.. I joke with U..,

Best Dry-Hopping is done in between 3-7 Days. 7 days or more, the hops take on more of a grassy flavour. If that's the desired effect, then dry hop longer for sure
