I will probably be transferring it to a secondary tomorrow so I can free up my primary fermenter for Pliny.

You might want to consider getting yourself a second primary fermenter.  You could totally avoid the need to transfer to secondary that way.

I actually just got one in the mail. I guess I would really need three. I don't mind the extra sanitizer and the chance of oxidation as I drink the beer pretty quickly

You may already know this, but FG readings with a refractometer need to be adjusted using this web site http://seanterrill.com/2012/01/06/refractometer-calculator/

Yep, I figured this out when I read that my FG was 1.040 so I got BeerSmith which has a converter built right into it.  Great birthday present!!

Just popped one of these and I must say it is extremely delicious!! Very citrusy and fruity.  A little bit of haze when its in the glass.  Perfect bitterness but I feel like it needs a little more in the flavor and aroma department.  I will be brewing this again soon with some tweaks!!  I suggest trying this IPA if your looking for a new recipe!
