Default Lowest IBU IPA on the market?

Hey y'all I am not a hop head I am trying to learn to love all beers though. So I'm enjoying pale ales I have brewed two from more beer and love them both so far. So my question is I'm looking to push my limits but not go all out so what is the lowest IBU IPA commercial beer out there? The BJCP guidelines say 40-60 IBU's so what would be the 40? Any help that could make me love all beer would be awesome! Thanks

Lagunitas DayTime jumps to mind. It's about 4.5% with 60 (?) IBU's. And it's super tasty. Check it out if you haven't arleady.

I have not tried that beer, I'll check the local bottle shop for it. Thanks

Shock top has an IPA. It fits with the whole "drink ability" thing. It's gotta be less than 40 I would say.

Most agree though, it really isn't an IPA in the traditional sence.

Founder's All Day IPA, 42. (probably not available in CA). Stick with Pale Ale's if IPAs are too hoppy for you. Nothing wrong with not loving hoppy beers, though you are probably in the minority.

I was beginning to think I was the only hop-hater out there. Hop-hater might be a little strong as I do appreciate a mild floral aroma and flavor, just not the bitterness. I love Belgians, Bavarians and a few Brits; and avoid most commercial American beers, and just about anything made in California (which is where I live and drink). Obviously there are exceptions, but I'm a malt-head in a hoppy world. Long live "liquid bread"! Prost!
