Default Contaminated or not?

Just looking at my brew from yesterday. It doesn't look at all like my other US-05 beers I have made. The Krausen on top is more like porridge then the nice and foamy. Maby this is only a stage I haven't seen or is it contaminated? imageuploadedbyhome-brew1400425765.763691.jpg

Is it an IPA?

I see nothing wrong in this picture. Be thankful it's not grazing the top (I hate that, it always makes me nervous). My first batch scared the hell out of me. I thought it was going to blow.

It's not even close the top. Last brew I needed a blow off tube and had about 200ml of yeast in the blow off bottle. It was a repitch of us-05. This is a fresh pitch. Now after 3 days it looks like this. imageuploadedbyhome-brew1400617809.882892.jpg
