That's quite disrespectful to Deschutes. Since they took the time to put Cascadian Dark Ale on the label and do indeed wish it to be called just that.

From that page:

"Can an IPA be black? Semantics aside, this noir version adds deep roasted malts to alter the hue and slightly smooth the edges. What emerges is something deeper, less orthodox, and all its own."

Of course, they probably have a better sense of humor than you do.

Exactly. An IPA can not be black. Also from the same write up...

Take the plunge – a hop, if you will – into this new Cascadian Dark Ale. Many may never even try to swim for shore.
And my sense of humor is just fine. Oh mighty San Diegoan.

Oh my Gosh, they referred to it as a black IPA and that other thing, too! Crazy that people would be understanding that there's more than one name for a beer.

Besides, Hop in the Dark is just an American Brown. Big deal. Great beer, though.
