Other than that, the only smell will be a bit of yeast.
I used to love that smell as i walked past the brewery on my way to Newcastle college as a kid
I'm wondering the same about the hop smell on my new build, i'm considering getting a shoddy crap pile of shit kitchens hood extractor and trying to either direct the extracted air to where it wont be noticed as much or to possibly filter it somehow.
Dont know whether it would make any difference or not though.
