This is a little like asking, "How high is up?" It might be easier if you look at their clones for IPAs you like. I've never purchased one of their IPA kits, but their clone kits are very good.

Try starting a new thread "AHB clone - Anchor Steam's Liberty Ale Opinions?"

3 Months? Why so long? Do IPA's require a little more conditioning?

I also ordered the mini mash and will be testing out my new mash tun with it instead of steeping the grains. It should be interesting...

IPAs (especially if > 1.060 gravity) may require a bit more aging due to the gravity alone, but I don't think significantly longer...

Generally speaking, I think 3 months would probably be ideal aging for a medium gravity brew, in my opinion... I would never judge a beer (well, I would but wouldnt expect it to be at its best) after only 6 weeks (1-2-3 rule). 6 weeks plus an addition 4-6 weeks of aging (maybe cold aging in the fridge), then I would expect something pretty good for a medium gravity ale.
