    I found that setting hopping step as FWH clears boil time (makes the field read-only also) and sets IBU contributed as 0 for this step. Is it really supposed to work like this?

    FWH additions are converted to a 20 minute addition internally inside the calculator. Here is a thread that talks more about how we addressed it:

    The IBUs would be zero if you had no fermentables in the boil, or no amount specified.
