IPAs, by style guidelines don't really need to have the hop aroma. By the time the beer would make it to India, from Brittan, the aromatics would have been long dissipated.
That said, if you like the aromatics, then go for it. I know I would.
1.12 does sound very high, even for an IIPA, have you calibrated your hydrometer lately? I know there's instructions around here somewhere.
