With the Ritchies kits that's how they intend it, the little bag is to use as a filter over the end of your siphon tube.I've pitched in the hops without bothering to bag them. Ritchies suggest dry hopping after 5 days which really doesn't seem a good idea.
It's a really hoppy brew, four or five days in the FV will give a big hop taste and aroma. In fact a bit too much for me, I've tended to leave the bottles untouched for a couple of months to let it mellow out a bit.
