Since Arrogant Bastard is a pretty hefty beer ABV wise, I would say leave it in your fermentation vessel at least two weeks, maybe more. You can still test final gravity regardless of the original gravity though. I assume you bought a kit - what final gravity did it say you should end up with?
As mentioned above, the only transfer I would do is to the bottling bucket which would have the corn sugar in it so that the yeast will have something to eat to provide the carbonation in the bottle. I would also say that two weeks in the bottle is a minimum, but a good time to open one to see how they are carbing up.
I have never bottled out of a bucket (When I bottle it is out of a keg), so maybe someone else can chime in to describe the best way to do that.
