A recommendation is fine. But telling people they will have a weak IPA, with low bitterness and aroma, by employing a 3-4 week fermentation/conditioning/dryhopping schedule is just plain false.
Stop speaking in absolutes and then maybe people won't call you out.

What you're referencing has more to do with time in the bottle. Like a 6 month old bottle of Pliny the Elder vs. one that was just bottled 2 weeks ago. No one is leaving their hoppy IPAs in their fermenters for several months so this flavor/aroma dropoff you speak of is not an issue.

Am I missing something? All I see are a couple of people disagreeing with you. Unless some posts were deleted, I don't understand this reaction.

Absolutes? I was said that you would be "hard pressed" to make something as good as your favorite commercial example if you do the longer process in my experiences.

There is no need to calling people out AT ALL. Apparently you take this too seriously.

Whatever dude... All I did was disagree with you. Take the stubborn defensiveness elsewhere. Just try not to mislead anyone else with your naive remarks about the correct processes of brewing a great IPA.

I left an ipa in primary for 2 months and it did have noticbly less bitterness than what I was expecting. That was all my fault. Its still an awesome beer. I prefer my ipa's young. Everyone here needs to rdwhahb

I was about to say let´s get back on topic and I realized that this thread it´s more than 3 years old... I don´t understand what is all this arguing about.

That's a bit overkill.

Your prerogative ... just don't say it's the way to go or how everyone does it or should do it when it's obviously not.

It's ok, I've never actually brewed (and probably never will brew) an IPA. I'm just trollin'.
