I expect their next meeting to be heavily influenced by plot and the conditions/situation that they meet under. Dragon does not seem like the type of guy who would drop by just to say "hi" like Garp did at Water 7, and Luffy doesn't seem too interested in searching him out right now (that may change, as I said, based on plot/storyline).
But I would expect both of them to fall asleep mid-conversation in their next meeting
Luffy:Er..You are you?
Dragon:...... Im your Father...
Luffy:Oh...Good to know.What are you doing here?
Dragon:Nothing just checking you out..
Luffy:Ok.You dont checking?I gtg now so bye.
i think luffy will think he is an enemy and attck him. dragon will stop him and reply u have gotten strong luffy. luffy will then be like who are you, and robin will say thats dragon.
i think dragon will tell luffy about his mother and tell him why he left him alone
Well, we all know that the feelings of Dragon for Luffy are not the ones that Luffy has for him. And with a good reason, considering that He doesn't know Dragon AT ALL.
I think the meeting will be awkward for everyone. Probably Luffy will hit him.
I don't think Luffy holds any grudges against Dragon.... He just doesn't seem to care. I don't think Luffy would care even when he meets Dragon and knows that's who it is. I also don't think Dragon would feel insulted by Luffy's attitude and outlook on the situation. He seems to respect Luffy's lack of respect for authority figures. I kind of see things turning out like how Luffy ran into Ace in Arabasta: They meet by chance (I imagine Luffy picking his nose during the introduction), talk a little (fall asleep while talking), then Dragon covers for Luffy (being chased by someone) and Luffy says "sure, thanks" with a big smile and just run away.
I think it won't be all that emotional a meeting, they both seem set on achieving their goals and they don't really seem to get in each other's way. There will no doubt be mutual respect for each other, and it'll be interesting to see if they talk about Goa Kingdom, as I'm sure Garp kept Dragon informed about how Luffy was doing.
The only thing that would make this meeting interesting is if garp shows up, I think garp might hold animosity towards dragon, his son is trying to flip the world on it's head directly opposing garps ideals.
A one-of-a-kind Kodak moment.
Dragon: Luffy, my son, it's good to see you again after such a long tim.
Luffy: You're Dragon? Why'd did Gramps name you that?
Dragon: That is...a story set for another time. Why don't get something to eat, like some...meat?
Luffy: Oohhh!! Meat!! Yatta!!!
Dragon: YES!!! Meat is the greatest!!!
(The duo rush over to the table, lickety-split, with a pile of meat on their dishes.)
Strawhats: OY! What kind of a meeting is that?!
Dragon & Luffy: (snoring away, each with a bubble sticking out of their nose.)
Strawhats: Ahh!!! Not again!?
Dragon: Luffy, you remind me so much of your mother.
Luffy: W-wait, I had a mom?
Dragon:...............Yes, son. Ahh, you're so much like her.
Ussop: I can't believe we're meeting Luffy's Dad!!
Nami: Who just happens to be the most wanted man in the world.
Sanji: Talk about a family tradition.
Zoro: I can't believe Dragon knocked up a woman whose got the same mind as Luffy's.

When they meet, it would probably be something relevant to the plot at the time and would probably be used to progress the story, rather than a casual meeting that won't pertain to anything that is going to take place in the future or address any vital information.
On this page, Iva states that Dragon has yet to make his move, and then on this page, Dragon says that the world is waiting for 'their' answer. My bet is that when Dragon finally decides to come out of the shadows and make his move, will be when he will meet Luffy. He seems to be waiting for the right time to meet Luffy just as he is waiting for the right time to act. Both could very well be linked.
Dragon is too stiff, my bet is that Luffy will find him boring and his feeling towards his father will be indifference.
i don't think it will be very different from when he meet his grandfather ....really now i think he will ask him like stupid questions not the kind you ask on you're 1st meeting with your father ....i'm sure he will be more excited to see shanks that dragon for the simple fact that he didn't gave much thought of him having a father
speaking of which i'm more curious to see the meeting between usopp and yasopp ...i'm still wondering if yasopp knows that his son is part of luffy's crew hmm
I see three possibilities
Dragon will arrive with "battling" intent
Dragon will arrive with "family" intent
Dragon will arrive with "business" intent
I think we will see a new side to Dragon's character whenever it happens though
Btw, I would lay good odds for Dragon to have the dragon mythical zoan fruit. Just how Marco "the phoenix" has a phoenix devil fruit, Dragon has a dragon fruit.
Besides it would explain all of the wind and fire motiffs in the scenes with Dragon in it.
