Thats what the BJCP style guide says, although with a single decoction (also supposedly traditional) you are technically boiling the hops for some period of time.

i grow my own hops so they are cheap.
i guess i don't see any advantage of this over traditional hopping.  bitter early and flavor late i would think would accomplish this as well.   i may try fwh for this "smoothness" people are talking about.

+1.  I may have to try FWH on my next AIPA.

I'd say it's a West coast mindset on hops, but he (Smith) is from Minnesota, so I guess it is just a hophead's mindset.....

I think he lives in Oakland, CA. I certainly see him at a lot of local beer events...

Yes, he is a member of DOZE, which is an east Bay Area club.
