you are missing out if you aren't dry hopping

What is the great benefit to dry hopping? Just a more intense and fresh hop smell and taste

I just added my first dry hop on a IIPA (based on scottland's double jack clone) with just under 16 oz in 6 gallons: 5 oz boil, 5 oz whirlpool and 5.5 oz on a multipart dry hop.

8 oz in a 3 gallon batch, which equates to 13.3 oz for a 5 gallon. It's drying hopping right now. Black ipa.

A guy I know dry-hopped a 15G batch with 3 or 4 lbs of fresh hops, plus whatever he put in the boil. Maybe the best beer I ever had, so hop-oily it was sticky and sweet. I think my personal high is a little under a lb for 5 gallons.
