Default Where to find average fermentation/condition times for different styles?

I was wondering if someone could point me to a listing of different styles and their typical recommended fermentation and conditioning times. I kind of know some styles are good young like smaller APA's and wheats but don't know the actual recommended times though.

He's kidding, but it's the truth. There's no way to just say "IPA's take 3.5 weeks to ferment and need 4.2 weeks of conditioning to be perfect." It's all personal preference, and it varies from recipe to recipe and even from brew to brew. Sorry, but the only true test is your own tastebuds.

I guess you could say I'm looking more for general guidelines than an exact certifiable day the brew MUST be racked.
