You know, they say opinions are like a certain thing... and they all stink.  ;)

We want to learn everything there is to know about mashing temperatures, mash time, hop boil times, whirlpool hop additions, experimentation, and the most accurate way to calculate IBUs.
We don't care about IPA.  Give us science.
And give me some good German lager.

Then you definitely WANT this book:
Technology Brewing and Malting
Wolfgang Kunze

Worth every pfennig.

Got it.  Been meaning to read it sometime but haven't gotten around to it quite yet.  Soon.

In the statement above..."We don't care about IPA", pretty much sums it up for us.

I like Greg Noonan's book, New Brewing Lager Beer.

Kunze = +/-$350…but worth the money if you want the deep dive.

Yea, I never bought the book, though I have read parts of it - I am a contented shallow water swimmer, I guess.  (or a cheap brewer!)

I care about IPA.  90% of what I brew is IPA.

I'm one of the ones!  It wouldn't be so ubiquitous if it wasn't so popular!

If I want a rich, full IPA, it's still my Rye IPA.  These days I often go lighter. Mecca Grade Lamonta and 8-10 C20 or 40 to 1.064 or 68.  Usually Chinook for bittering, then additions at 20, 10, 5, 3 , flameout, and dry hop. Shooting for a 1:1 BU:GU ratio.  Hop variety chosen by looking at the survivables  booklet and what I have on hand.
