Default Beer has carbonated, cool it down?

My IPA was barely carbed after 3.5 weeks at mid-high 60's, so I put it in the garage which varies from mid 70's to mid 80's. I also flipped them over a handful of times to get the yeast into suspension. I tried one tonight and it is now plenty carbonated, but it needs some more time to condition as it still tastes fairly new. Should I go ahead and leave them out in the garage (preferred), or bring them inside where it's a little cooler? Will the sustained higher temps cause any issues? Thanks.

Fridge as many as you can. A few days or more at cooler temps helps to settle the yeast and compact the trub. If you can, move the rest to a slightly cooler area.

Good Temp Control -----> Happy Yeast ------> Tasty Brew
