Single ref game. Ref calls an attacker on team A offside. But after blowing the whistle and saying offside, ref realizes there was a defender from team B that he did not see all the way back by the penalty area which clearly made the attacker from A not offside (by about 15 yards). Play has already stopped. What are the options for the restart?

Since he caught the error before the restart, the referee can change the restart. When you have a restart for any reason not covered in the Laws of the Game, or in this case an inadvertent stoppage of the game the restart is a dropped ball.

While we're on the subject of a dropped ball, a dropped ball is in play once the ball hits the ground and it is NOT like a face off in hockey. Fair play is traditionally used when a dropped ball is made and in this case fair play would be if the referee dropped the ball the defense would kick it back to the offense since the offside call was in error.

So if someone touches the ball before it drops on the ground, you have to re-do it? Does this merit a yellow card in any circumstance?

The restart is another dropped ball. A yellow card? That depends on the behavior. I usually explain to the players before a dropped ball that the ball is in play when it hits the ground. If it was just a player trying to be aggressive then no yellow. Of course again I have seen very little fair play being taught to youth players and usually a dropped ball is not a face off like in hockey. So if one team had possession before the cause of the dropped ball usually the team that had the ball's opponent allows him to have the ball. Especially since a goal cannot be scored directly off of a dropped ball.

If you suspect the player that played the ball prior to it hitting the ground did it to waste time or just to be unsporting and kicked the ball far out of bounds for no other reason then a yellow card can be shown to him for delay of restart.

LIReff is correct. Dropped ball. I agree I wish fair play was something taught to the kids as well, meaning we play the ball back to the keeper but in this situation if we did, it would penalize the attacking team who had the ball. It was good that the referee caught his mistake.

There is nothing in LOTG that say to issue a YC unless a foul has occurred. Anything else would be another dropped ball. In which any and all players can be a part of.

Well let me clarify my remarks. The LOTG absolutely cover giving a Yellow Card to a player for Unsporting Behavior or Delaying the Restart, so for example if one player during a dropped ball deliberately kicked the ball far out of bounds before it hits the ground to waste time it would be a yellow card for MISCONDUCT. Of course the context of the situation would be essential so if the game was getting chippy and this player added any remarks it would be totally appropriate to show the player a yellow card for delaying the restart or unsporting behavior.
