Is Drop B tuning a step and a half down from standard?

Wouldn't a step and a half down bring you to C#/Db though?

B would be 2 steps down. (I.E D to C (1 step,) C to B (1 more step.)

Yes, apart from the thickest string which is two and a half steps down.

C to B is a half step, as there's no Cb/B#.

To clarify, tune to B Gb B E Ab Db

Really, I didn't know you had to add a semi-tone down the Low E.

Drop D, then a half step lower you have drop Db/C#, then another half step lower its drop C, then another half step lower, its Drop B, then another half step lower, its Drop Bb/A#, then another half step lower, its Drop A.
Heyya go.
