How about right now?
With the recipe i used, It came out very citrusy (i'm assuming from the dry hopped nugget hops) ... But all my buddies that drank the free beer I had (ski patrol for all you Three Sheet's watchers) they said that was one of the best qualities of the beer, aside from it being free for them and getting them drunk...
I kegged it impatiently at 13 days... and after about 2 additional weeks the flavors really melded together making a great beer. I'd say give an IPA at least a month if your impatient.. but two months would be better if you have something else to drink in the mean time
