Default Secondary fermentation/dry hopping

I recently tried secondary fermentation and dry hopping for the first time. From what I even reading, it seems like secondary fermentation should go for 2 weeks. My problem is I dry hopped right away. I think two weeks will be too much dry hopping. Should I sacrifice a week of secondary and bottle after just one week?

Sure. However depebding on style, you can easily go 10-14 days with dry hop. I usually do 10 days with my really hoppy brews.

How long was your primary fermentation? If your beer sat in the primary for a week plus you should be just fine with a week long dry hop. Then its time to bottle!! and wait....lol,

You should be fine with a week or so in the secondary. Just remember the dry hops dont make the beer "hoppy" tasting, they just give your nose that big blast of hop aroma!!
