I have never dry hopped and now have a 10 gallon batch of an APA going in a conical. The recipe requires dry hopping.
Can I dry hop right in the conical after fermentation completes?
I have the ability to drop the temperature if necessary to ensure the yeast drops out if that is something that would help.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Sure. That's what the pros do. No need to crash cool it. Just wait until the vigorous fermentation dies down so you don't lose aroma with the CO2.

Hmm. I'm not sure why you would consider even racking to secondary if you have a conical. Since you can dispense of most of floculated yeast in a conical, at that point it essentially becomes a "secondary." Anyway, I also rarely secondary ales, and often dry hop in primary after fermentation is complete. Works well.
