I've been brewing for a long time and feel like I know what I'm doing. However, no matter what I have tried, I still ens up with sediment in my bottles after they are filled. I could siphon off the top and leave a few inches of beer behind, I suppose which would leave the beer cleaner. Maybe I should ditch bottling all together? Any suggestions?

You might trying letting sit a while longer in Secondary and when you transfer stay off the bottom sediment. Myself Keg's but heck a little sediment won't hurt

Thanks. I just made a batch of all grain imperial IPA and used 7 ounces of hops to dry hop with in a 5 gallon batch. I had the hops in hop bags, but minute hop particles get through the mesh of the hop bag. Maybe I shouldn't be so greedy trying to get as much beer as possible to bottle. Maybe I should siphon off the top and leave a few inches of beer behind.

When I dry hop in the carboy, I use a "Sure Screen" on the end of my racking cane to filter out any particles. You can also use a fine nylon or muslin hop bag over the end of your racking hose as you fill the bottling bucket. If you have time, you could even let the bottling bucket sit for a half hour or so to allow the sediment to drop to the bottom of the bucket.
