IPAs aren't the easiest type of beer to brew, but they are far more easy than the similar Lager style of beer brewing. Like Lagers IPAs use many of the same processes, but without the big risks of failing. They are more forgiving in terms of off-flavors and can be salvaged very easily.
For an IPA, I dry-hop for one week when the main fermentation is over (usually three days after pitching the yeast). After dry-hopping, the beer can be filled to kegs or bottles. With sugar, the carbonation takes around one week.
