I was wondering what is the easiest way to create a drop ceiling with perforated metal panels (so light can go through), without having to make each one individually.

You don't need to make each one individually, use the "MATERIALS", like you can see by the images use Metal material then you can chose the "Cut-outs/Perforations" or you have already, in the Metals, some of them like you want... take a look

The material you showed looks like what I want but I was thinking 4x4 square panels. How can I show this in a grid, panel form?

WW... he want a "ceiling", to simplify this you need to use an "Image", one with the right texture and other (black and white) like an "Alpha channel" to use in the "bump" parameter... With this you can create a "Material" and use it in your ceiling....

Ooops... Did not see that.  Make a new lay-in ceiling that has your material assigned to it.  You can find perferated metals in your materials.

I tried that but it will not show the perforations in the render (It looks correct in the material preview), it just looks smooth. I  just went ahead and created a custom mass panel with perforations and copied it... Slows file down but I couldn't figure out what was going wrong with the other method.
