1056, Safale-05, Notty?
The 1056 and more recently the Safale-05 have been my IPA work horses since I started brewing. I had great luck with Ringwood Ale from Wyeast in Yoopers DF Clone.
Any other favorites?

Thames Valley also makes a fine American IPA.

I used Ringwood in my last batch of Yooper's Dogfish head, and it turned out great too. Pacman works wonders, of course. I'm going to do a double batch this time with Pacman in 5 G and Wyeast 1968 London ESB in the other 5 G, just because I have it.

Hear, hear!

I have started using either Thames or Denny's 50 on all my American styles. I'm one of those idjits who doesn't like S-05.

I'm culturing up the Bell's yeast right now and will brew a RyePA with it.

I'm a white labs guy

WLP001 cal ale
WLP002 english ale
WLP004 irish ale
WLP005 british ale
WLP007 dry english ale
etc...

Even the Edingburgh WLP028 should work good.

-05 is hard to beat for its ease-of-use and cost-effectiveness. I would like to give pacman a try though.
