I like to tie the dropper to the bend of the hook like BigDave. No need to limit yourself to 16" though.

The dropper is a good place to use fluorocarbon leader material. It makes a significant difference in helping your dropper fly to get down. I don't use it for the leader though as it will cause the dry fly to sink prematurely.
