My 100-400 IS seems to be focusing about 6 inches short of the intended subject.  Is there adjustments in the 7D that can help with that?

Yes.  The 7D allows AFMA (AF Micro Adjusting).  C.Fn. III - 5. 

 

For proper results you will need a tool to properly test your lens:

 

I prefer and use FoCal.  Other measuring tools are LensAlign (which I do not recommend) and Spyder LensCal.

If you want to adjust your lens without any tool you can try this:
