Ummm. What do you mean "your recipe"?

1 week is too soon to rack any beer out of a primary. Certainly a big IPA needs a good 3+ weeks before it's ready to be moved.

Your beer will be fine. Leave it alone in that secondary for 3-4 weeks. It will continue to ferment, albeit slower since you've racked the beer of the main yeast cake.

I bought a recipe online, and made some minor modifications. Thanks for the info, I figured it was too soon to rack to secondary but did it anyway. Rookie mistake!

Exactly one month after brewing, this sucker is sitting on four ounces of hops (3 whole, 1 pellet). Soon!

This was my first BiG Hop IPA and is phenomenal. The smell is awesome and the taste is wonderful. FG ended up at 1.013 and even with the alcohol content there's no alcohol burn at all, very good recipe Beermuncher

Brewed this last night - 1.082 on the nose. Made some minor adjustments in hop addition times to nail the ~100 IBU mark. This is the first time I've dealt with 20+ lbs of grain ...wow. Also went with 6-6.5 gal into the primary (blow off tube definitely in place). Can't wait!

this recipe is on deck...finally...i've been thinking about it for a long time. Only change I am going to make is to swap out the amarillo gold hops for Citra that I have around here and want to use. Thanks for the recipe!

Finished up late last night, hit the numbers on the nose...pitched by yeast a little warmer than I like to due to absolute stupidity but woke up this morning and it bubbling away like crazy! Sitting on my basement floor a 66 degrees now. Thanks for the recipe, I'll repost when we get around to tasting!
