I have to say either my palate has been murdered or this Donkey Piss IPA has turned out pretty good after a few extra days. I'm glad to say that I brewed this thing. I just wish I knew what a true ranger ipa tasted like so I could compare the two

yes, also just because something is carbed up in the keg doesn't mean it's ready to age, especially if you didn't let it sit long enough in primary.

Hey guys I asked this question on another thread but didn't get any replies. I have a 5 gallon batch of an ipa i brewed 3 weeks ago I transferred it to the secondary on Saturday almost a week ago, and I decided I want to dry hop it. Is it too late or would I be fine to dry hop now?

you can dry hop anytime in the process. If my kegged IPA needs a bit of a punch, I will drop a bag o' hops into the keg for a week...
