That's an excellent yeast in an Altbier but I haven't tried it in a pale ale.
May want to use a blow off tube. It can get really turbulent.

I use 007 for my yearly batch of IPA and am very happy with it.

I'm using WLP007 for my next couple of brews. It flocculates really well so it will leave you with a nice bright beer. It's clean fermenting if you keep it relatively cool.

Flocculates so well it's a real pain to make a starter!

Yes. White Labs says it can handle 10% with no problem.

I love it! It is my yeast of choice; I've probably used it on more ales than any other strain. After reading Ray Daniels' Designing Great Beers, I decided to use it on my Irish stout and, IMHO, it actually makes a better Irish stout then the typical 'Irish Stout' strains available.

I've never had a problem making a starter with it.

This yeast is similar to WLP-002 in flavor profile, but is 10% more attenuative. This eliminates the residual sweetness, and makes the yeast well suited for high gravity ales. It also reaches terminal gravity quickly. 80% attenuation will be reached even with 10% ABV beers. Attenuation: 70-80%, Flocculation: high, Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-70¦ F

Above is the info on the yeast from the homebrew.com web site. I've used it a few times and it clears up really well and has a great profile for english bitters and strong bitters.
