I have had many.....and without getting into DIPA's here is my IPA list:

#1 Port Brewing Wipeout IPA --hands down my favorite--its dry and the best West Coast IPA I have ever had. I had this in a taste test with a few other beers including Scuplin, etc. This has been my favorite for about 2 years.
#2 Alesmith IPA--a close second to Port's Wipeout...its the best on draft.
#3 Breakwater Brewing's Kali Kush--had this one at the Stone Anniversary party (along with a bunch of hoppy beers) and it was so memorable in its aroma and flavor--if you are in SoCal, check this one out....

Honorable mentions from recent trips?

Hercules IPA on tap in Denver was excellent, and Driftwood's Fat Tug was eerily similar (and I would say a touch better) on tap in Vancouver.

Im going to have to do a blind taste test with my top three sometime.Im pretty confident which will be which though. Im knowing my beer pretty good these days.

Between a top 20 ,I dont think I really honestly know my top three.Some day if I get them all together,that could be a glorious day. Possibly an indecisive one also.
