Default Dry hop the Northern Brew IPA or not?

NORTHERN BREWER: High Gravity Ale Kits (Extract)

The inventory link has the last hop package going in at the last minute.

Should I save the packet and dry hop it after 2 weeks, when i throw it into the secondary?

Or, should I just leave it the way it is?

And, what are you ideas on the lazy way (leaving the IPA in the primary for 6-8 weeks then to keg?)

Thanx in advance!

I'd brew it as-is. You can always dry-hop in the keg before carbing. That's how I do it. For my 3CPA, I dryhopped three times before I got it where I wanted it. I generally keg at 4 weeks.
