Sounds about right. I'm a noob to it myself. My first IIPA was my own. My wife got me my beginner's brew setup for Christmas and bought me a IIPA extract kit as my first.
I enjoyed it a lot, even though I think mine had a little more maltiness than is typically expected in any IPA. Since then I've had Lagunita's Hop Stoopid which was delicious.
