I picked up Torpedo two days ago and I really didn't like it. It was bitter but I just didn't enjoy the taste of it. At first I was worried that I was starting to not like IPAs but then i went to a bar and had a stone IPA and firestone IPA. Still love IPAs just not Torpedo.

I love arrogant bastard, and not a huge fan of Torpedo - I know it's well made beer, but I found it underwhelming and kind of subdued, whereas arrogant bastard is much more in-your-face, for lack of a better term. But I don't find them similar at all. I don't know why this is getting into which one is "better," considering that it's all personal preference.

Not really similar. AB is substantially better.
