I added hops at 0 minutes per a two hearted clone recipe with a wort chiller in there, covered it with a digital thermometer ( everything sanitary) and it looks like the last hop addition is clouding up. Is this normal with real late additions?

A lot of that gunk will drop out as you chill/whirlpool, and the rest should sink after you're done fermenting.

I've done several late-hopped batches that dropped clear just fine, even though they were an ugly cloudy mess going into the fermenter.
