Yeast Pitch Rate and Starter Calculator
your going to want slightly more water to start from the hop absorbtion

Fermented at 62F for 6 days, then raised the temp to 68F for 8 more days to help the yeast finish up.

note: the extra "Attenuation" from fermenting this way with this yest, you might not get this low a gravity if you change anything :)

Dry Hops:

Rack to secondary then add:
Amarillo/Citra/Centennial/CTZ (1oz each) for 5 days

Amarillo/Citra/Simcoe (1oz each) Added day 5 for 4 more days

Rack to bottling bucket/keg on day 9 from the secondary.
