IPAs have little to do with color in the USA now. Think of how dark many IIPAs are.
that's fine to creat a different name as long as you don't use IPA with a dark color
germans have the wordage dunkel or schwarz as dark or black.
I saw the wordage india brown or indian brown that would fit the profile much better then using india black pale ale
Cascadian dark sounds like a winner for a heavily hopped dark ale/lager using cascade as the primary hop.
