This is my RDWHAHB approach to this problem with AG brewing.
1) Formulate recipe for 6 g final volume in the pot after the boil
2) Use a hop bag for whole hops
3) After the boil drain the hop bag and let stand for 30-60 minutes
4) Drain off (or siphon if you don't have a valve on your brewpot) 5g of crystal clear wort - yes that leaves a gallon behind but it is mostly trub/hop debris
