Default White labs yeast for IPA / Pale Ale.

I think i used a California Ale White labs yeast for my first IPA. has anyone done the Pacific Ale yeast? that one seems better. The Calif V yeast seems okay too, any tried the Pacific?

I know it sounds odd, but I've done a few IPA's with WLP004 irish Ale. Clean, and just a little fruity. YMMV

Used it (Wyeast version though) for the IIPA in my kegerator right now. Its got a little more fruity character and definitely a bit maltier than the 1056/001. It is good no doubt, but I prefer the 1056.

Pacman (Wyeast) or American Ale Blend.

WLP007, Gives of vary little esters and can finish vary dry. It flocs out really well to give you the clarity you want for an IPA. I have been using this yeast at 68º and have been getting good results with it.
