Default I.P.A Slow and or Fast Fermentation

Hi,
Two days ago I brewed up a IPA
and the Fermention is kinda weird compared to my other beer
this is my second brew

I put it in the glass carboy and let it sit overnight and i checked on it the next morning and it had no Krausen but the airlock was bubbling

now its on its second day, it got lighter and a little bit of Krausen but its bubbling only once every 20 to thirty seconds,
is this normal?

Sounds good to me.

The lag time depends on a lot of things. What was the gravity of the beer compared to your first. Did you make a starter?

Bubbles in the airlock are not a reliable indicator of the progress of fermentation.

Keep the beer in the low to mid sixties for 3-4 weeks then take gravity readings for 3 days. If the beer is stable an has cleared to your satisfaction you can proceed with bottling.

the O.G was 1.05
just checking if it sounded normal to more experienced brewing
and it smells quite hoppy
