Default wyeast wlp 008 and 013

I'm going to be washing and saving some 008 and 013. I used these in a holiday ale and a chocolate raspberry stout. I have never washed and saved yeast before but I am starting now to save money on good yeast and I want to build up a nice supply. I'm doing an IPA soon and I may try one of these instead of the us05 I usually use. Has anyone used either of these in and american style IPA?

I've never used either, but reading the descriptions on the white labs website, it sounds like either would work well in an IPA. Of course, the different strains will lend different characteristics to the beers, so read up on both and decide which would work better for you.

At the recommendation of a fellow brewer (and a provided sample) I made an IPA with 008. It came out OK. I should have added some Munich or more Crystal since the beer came out a little thin with very little flavor from the yeast.

I preferred my usual Alt yeast (036) version, but 008 made a fine brew.

Looking at my brew record, the recipe was:

92% 2-Row
5 % C20
3 % C60
25 IBU Simcoe (90)
25 IBU Chinook (90)
10 IBU Simcoe (5)
10 IBU Chinook (5)
5 IBU Cascade (5)
1/2 oz Simcoe/Chinook/Cascase (DH)
WLP008

Mash at 155 for 60 min. 90 min boil

HTH

From the descriptions I thought the 013 might work well for an IPA but I was hoping to hear from someone who actually used it. I like the IPA I make with the US05 but I'm curious how the others would work.
