I made an ipa that was hopbursted as jamil z recommends. It tastes good in the primary, been there two weeks. The aroma seems to be there already. I used a pound of centennial and some amarillo in a 12 gallon batch, with most of those hops added with less than 15 mins in the boil and in whirlpool. At this point, do you think dry hopping would impart a harshness? Thanks

Yes, it's my opinion that all IPA' should be dry hopped,
Think I need to worry about oxidation with primary finished......or real close to finishing?

Why would you worry about oxidation? Generally we wait until fermentation is finished to add the dry hops.
