So I have an IPA in primary right now about to be bottled. I took a hydro sample and it was nice and clear, and at my target gravity (maybe a tad high). So I dry hopped it with an ounce of cascade pellets. I just took some out to give it a smell and a taste and it was really cloudy. What might be up? Its been in the fermenter for a month.

Dryhopping with pellets will do that. It will clear out with time. This is the main reason that I prefer to dryhop with leaf.

That all depends on how important clarity is to you. If I'm brewing a beer just for me and not for a competition, then I'm not overly concerned about clarity.

If you have other beers to drink, this one will probably clear up in a few weeks. If you're out of beer, then you'll be fine bottling it now.
