I use mesh bags for hops in the boil, don't strain... sometimes I even allow the mesh nags with the hops to go into the primary. I always rack to a secondary with a siphon and most of the trub and other shtuff stays behind in the primary. I usually end up with only a little sediment at the bottom of the secondary, and by the time its in the bottling bucket there is virtually nothing but clear beer.

Nope.  I do not strain.  I have in the past and found no improvement in my beers.  Today I brewed a big IPA with lotsa hops.  After chilling I racked the beer into my carboy.  Normally I pump-recirculate the wort during the last 5 minutes of the boil and the chill process so I just pump it straight to the carboy.

I sometimes strain my IPAs to keep excessive hop particles from making it into the finished beer but that is the only time I strain.
