$dt->offset is giving you the +1100 and -0700 portion of each time format, but in seconds rather than hours, i.e. 11 hours = 39600 seconds and -7 hours = -25200 seconds. You could use the $dt->epoch method to get the duration in seconds:
my $duration = $dt_received->epoch - $dt_sent->epoch; print "$duration seconds"; # 27 seconds
For finer grained control of the result you can use subtract_datetime()
my $duration = $dt_received->subtract_datetime( $dt_sent ); print $duration->minutes, " minutes, ", $duration->seconds, " seconds" +; # 0 minutes, 27 seconds
See DateTime::Duration

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
