I have always just dumped pellet hops into the fermenter when dry hopping. I was wondering if crushing the pellets first would be of any benefit? Seems like it might allow for quicker release of oils and aroma into the beer.

No need to do that at all. They desintigrate into the grainy stuff they're made from while soaking in the beer.
