Would I be right in assuming at zero mins on the boil, the end of it, that's the same as the term "flame out?" And also the recipie im following says "Hop Back/Back Hop" is that the same as flame out/0 mins?

Mine was too sweet when I made it but it benefitted from longer conditioing and eventually lost the sweetness, after 6 weeks it was just like the real thing.

mmm I've followed a recipe scaled down to just 5 ltrs. Not sure if I've understood it properly and I've learnt a lesson in that I couldn't get all of the hops into the demijohn. I found about 4 or 5 recipes all with slight variations. Anyways its cooling down now before I put the yeast in. Its been an enjoyable morning. The next one I'm up-scaling to 10ltrs so I can chuck it in my fermentation bucket. Lets see how this one turns out...lol

The hop back is like a container that Blichman or similar has invented where you infuse the hops with wort through transfer either to the keg or fermenter.I maybe wrong but do recall watching some related to this.

Well has been conditioning in the keg for about a while now but will certainly look forward to trying it again.

My recipe had no dry hopping as the hops were boil or flameout/whirlpool additions but I'm sure it will turn out fine.Try making a hop tea and adding before bottling once fermentation has completed.
