To me the IPA is just another style. I like some, others not so much. Never really cared for those at the extreme end of the bitterness spectrum. There are a few that I go back to again and again like Lagunitas (standard and Lil Sumpin' Sumpin'), Two-Hearted, Cigar City Jai Alai.
Out of 28 batches, I've brewed five IPAs and a IIPA. My one attempt at a NEIPA-ish beer was fantastic, among my top 2 or 3 batches and will definitely be in regular rotation.
