Default aging a tripel ipa?

i've had really bad luck brewing belgians, but all my IPAs have been great. so i was thinking that maybe i should try brewing a tripel ipa, which is one of my favorite styles anyway. my question to those who have experience with this style is do you age them for long periods (9-12 months) like a tripel, or do you begin drinking them within 2-3 months like a big ipa? i would guess the latter or somewhere in between since you wouldn't want the hops to fade out too much? what do you do?

I begin drinking my big IPAs after 2-3 weeks......hops fade quick. I would do the same with a belgian IPA, after fermentation completes, dry hop it, keg it and drink it.
