Part of the confusion might be coming from a trend I've noticed lately of some breweries making bigger pale ales that they call "imperial" pale ales. Another brewery might make this same beer and call it a "session" IPA.

So if you see a listing for an "imperial pale ale," it's a bigger pale ale with a buzzword added. If you see a listing for an IPA or imperial IPA then it's safe to assume the "I" stands for India.

English and American IPA are very similar, but an American IPA has a lot more flavor/aroma hops, and is almost always dry hopped. English IPA is seriously boring IMO

I've only tried one long ago, and I didn't like it. But I'm willing to try more or even brew one as I've grown an appreciation for the hop taste of noble hops, though it's not been in high concentrations as with an IPA.
