Why do IPAs carb "more quickly"?
They don't need to be in the fridge for a week to get CO2 in the beer. While they carbonate at room temperature, CO2 goes into the beer. Yes, at cooler temperatures the beer will retain more CO2 in suspension, but you can still have a decently carb beer by placing the bottle in the fridge for a couple of hours.
