Actually you need alot more weight of fresh hops as the hops contain a significant percentage of water. You should us the same amount of fresh hops as you would dry hops its just that the fresh hops weigh 4-6 times what dry hops weigh.
I have plans for a fresh hop IPA or IIPA using my hops harvest. I am thinking IIPA that way I can just over hop the beer. If the hops end up low in AA then I'm right on target. If the hops end up high in AA then I just saturate the wort/taste threshold.
