So I was dryhopping my Amarillo/cascade ipa and about 4 or 5 pellets fell on various surfaces in my fridge. I just threw them into primary and am hoping for the best. Dumb move?

There is nothing you can do now but worry. With the alcohol in the beer i'm willing to bet you will be A-OK. I wouldn't worry about it if i were you.
Without beer, life would be a mistake.

My glass carboy plug fell in my beer before racking. The top was exposed to air (my non finished basement room) for 2 weeks. It remained in the beer for the time I finish racking it, which mean 15 minutes +. Never saw or tasted any infections .
