You just tune it normally - you already have the extra notes that dropping a 6-string to D gives you.

Yeah, with the low B string, you can easily cover anything that you could have covered before by detuning.

ADADGBe is probably one of the more common tunings on a 7-string, and it matches up for power chords.

Congrats on the 7-string.

True, though some songs become very difficult if they are specifically written with the dropped D in mind. If you want to be able to simply bar chords on your 7 string with the low E tuned to D you could drop the B string to A or all the way down to G. Depends on what you are going for really.
