you mean no bittering charge at all?

When I am late hopping a brew I put some FWH and/or a small 60 minute and then load up at 10, 5, 0, and DH

i can't remember where i read it, but yes, it seems all the hops were added at 30 and later. 

maybe i better get back in beersmith and make some adjustments.

Wow, you're at 1.020 and it's still active? That's a good sign.

still looks active as heck, but i'm still at 1.020.  i'm beginning to think i have a stuck fermentation, but i don't know if the activity negates that thought.

From my experience, WY1450 is a bit slow (okay, very slow) during it's first generation. I've had IPAs in the primary for six weeks while using a first generation strain. After that first gen though, it picks up a bit.
