Be careful when converting all-grain recipes to extract recipes that use a concentrated wort boil. Remember, hop utilization decreases with concentrated wort boils. While a 60 to 90 minute boil of an all-grain recipe may get 30% utilization, the same boiling time of 6 lbs. (2.7 kg.) of extract boiled in 2 gallons (7.6 l.) of water will result in a 23% utilization. Do a little math and you will realize the necessity of adding 25% more hops to have the same contribution to bitterness.
Likewise, if extract brewers wish to convert their boiling procedures to full wort boils, the reverse of this principle applies; you need to consider reducing bittering hops by 25%.
Converting from a concentrated wort boil to a full wort boil (or vice versa) and substituting hop pellets for whole hops (or vice versa) can lead to as much as a 30 to 40% difference in the amount of bittering hops called for in a recipe in order to match what the recipe formulator intended. That's quite startling if you've never considered it before.*
