Should I dry hop or leave to clear

Hello all,

I have a chinook ipa that needs to be dry hopped, but i remembered seeing a thread that said if you dry hopped your beer for too long the hops would end up giving a grassy flavor. I will be out of the country for 2 month and i wanted to rack into keg and dry hop before i leave, but will it give my beer a grassy taste? Does anybody have experience.
By the time i leave, the chinook ipa will be at week 3, so should i just rack into secondary instead and it let sit for the 2 months while im going, or should i leave it in primary for the 2 months im gone making a total age time of 2 months 3 weeks in primary? Assuming that i cannot dry hop for more than 2 months.

I would rack to the keg and just let it sit until you get back and then dryhop for a week before chilling and carbing.

I agree with Shade. In addition, you don’t want to leave in the primary for almost 3 months.
