OK apologies for the really basic question, but when a recipe says:

Hops
50g Fuggles 4.5% @ 60 mins​
25g Fuggles 4.5% @ 15mins​
80g Fuggles 4.5% 80C Hopstand for 20 mins​
(boil time 60 min)​

Then, does that mean 50g at the start of the boil, then 25g after 45 mins, then 80g afterwards once the temperature has fallen to 80ºC ?

Ta, TETB

All hop timings are given backwards from the end because they're calculated (or guessed) based on the IBUs you'll get from them or the flavour oils that you won't lose by leaving them in too long. For the recipe you quoted that means you could boil for 90 minutes if that's your preference and still use the quoted timings.
