I use 1.5oz of three different hops in my IPA's boil. The remaining .5oz of each in a one week dry hop. So that's 1.5oz dry hop. You could smell as soon as the bottle was cracked open.

No. I was telling you the gravity of the beer because you said the amount of dry hops you use depends on how intense or how big the beer is. Did you already forget what you said in post #15?

I ended up adding 4oz of hops, check out my avatar

By big or intense, I meant overall hop character.

You can have an 8% IPA with weak, moderate, high, or insanely perfumey aroma.

Example:

Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Kern Citra

vs.

Lagunitas Maximus, Sam Adams 3rd Voyage, Deviant Dale's

There's no comparison as to which group has the better overall hop aroma and character.
