Yes and no. Malty beers will usually get better and better over time, but hop forward beers will lose their hop flavor and some bitterness over time. It's not that an IPA won't last as long as a stout, just that it won't really taste as much like an IPA anymore.

If you're pushing the keg with air, then it's only good for about a day after being tapped. If you're pushing with CO2, then it will last a very long time.

And if it's a corny, you can re-hop an IPA, right?

Yes and no. You can of course always add more dry hops or whatever to the keg, but there is a reaction that takes place with the iso-alpha acids which causes the beer to oxidize over time and make it taste more stale as the hoppiness fades. As with most things, time and temperature are important. Keeping your beer cold will dramatically extend its life, but regardless, hoppy beers will tend to degrade faster than their malty brethren.

i have an oatmeal stout in a corny - it's been in there, aging and getting better all the time, for 18 months now. no problems with it at all. it is on CO2. YMMV

I like to brew lagers, and certain type I don't start drinking for 6-8 months.
