Default VERY fast ferment. Problem?

I did a fairly high gravity(1.090 OG) on top of the yeast from an IPA (1.070 OG). The batch took off like gangbusters and now 60 hours later, it is at 1.014. Tastes really good but I was wondering if the fast ferment is going to cause any issues. TIA

Wow... only thing I can think is that the ipa yeast cake mght have had some stressed or too many yeast which both could cause issues, but if it tastes good... well done. Thats all that matters in the end.

Not out of the ordinary at all especially with fresh yeast on a high gravity beer, might have over pitched a bit but it shouldn't hurt the beer at all.
