I have done decoction mash hopping for no-boil Berliner Weisse, but generally speaking it does seem like a waste of hops.

As for the yeast strains, I'm surprised even more people didn't distinguish between the two, despite all of the hoppiness.  When I use the Conan strain (Omega DIPA) the beers taste very different from anything else I brew, and it's not particularly close.

The whole magic of Conan is supposed to be how it melds with hops so I like the heavy dry hops in this one.
