I've been reading about people using bags/straining their hops out after the boil, but I didn't. It's in the primary now for about 7 days and I was wondering if there will be any off flavors and if I should go about siphoning differently. Or will it all just settle as sediment with the yeast?

Edit: Ok I just saw the thread a couple below mine. That answers it. You can't delete threads?

I haven't tried to strain a beer since my third batch.

No Worries!

I'm currently drinking a batch where I did just that for the first time. It will settle out with the trub, don't worry. When I racked into the keg it was crystal clear and drinking out of the keg it has no off flavors.
