I followed a recepie from this one book. However, I dont know why it is called I.P.A because its dark - 0.5 lb chocolate barley-.
This is why I called it I.D.A. Its an ale, and its dark. And its got strong hops.

Is it sacrilage to call it India Dark Ale?

I.D.ale -ideal-

I can't remember who makes it, but there is at least one commercial example of a Black IPA out there.

Regardless.... call it whatever you want! Unless you are entering competitions, it really doesn't matter that you adhere to any particular style guidelines.

edit: even if you go by style, the top range of color for an IPA is 15 SRM from what I am reading right now.

My own IPA recipe is about 6 SRM (the low end of the PA scale) and if I add 0.5# of chocolate malt to it, it just BARELY goes to 18 SRM. Not very far out of bounds.

TONS of commercial examples of Cascadian Dark Ales. And to be honest, it's a pretty heated debate on what to call them.
