Default Looking for an IPA yeast at higher temp

My last two brews fermented around 74, a little high for 1056. What else have you guys used?

Really the only yeast suitable for higher temps are saison and other belgian strains but they have very distinct flavor contributions. Your best bet would be to make a swamp cooler. It is VERY simple and effective at providing lower fermentation temps!

You can always make a Belgian IPA. There are definitely yeast strains that can ferment comfortably in the mid 70s and not overwhelm hops at all. Might be a good time to start experimenting with some of them. I think the Leuven Pale Ale yeast that Wyeast has out right now would be a perfect one to try. Wyeast recommends 65-80, so anything in the 70s should be no problem.

WLP530 works well with Amarillo as well. One of my best IPA's was a belgo...

Agreed, try a Belgian IPA, they are very interesting and a nice break from the standard American style hoppy beer. I am drinking a keg of one right now brewed with centennial hops and WLP550 and it smells like straight up pineapple juice and tastes wonderful.

Good suggestions. I'm liking Northwest Ale and London Ale 3 also.
