I've got the Northern Brewer Broken Spear Bitter kit sitting on my table ready for my next brew day.
It looks to be a super simple kit. Doesn't even recommend a secondary in the instructions. Extract with specialty grains. 2 ounces of hops.
And it feels cool to be doing a limited edition kit.
It may not be on the opposite end of the spectrum from your IPA first batch, but it is certainly a different style.
