Default Are "beer-wine-brewing.com" kits any good?

I live in Alaska so any place that can get me brew kits in 5 days using USPS and charge a decent price are a must. I purchased around 4 kits from homebrewers.com they did $9 shipping for 1 kit which is decent other places wanted upwards of $27.00 for shipping for their kits. Anyways i found beer-wine-brewing.com place has nearly 50kits which is awesome alot of selection and they charge the same $9.00 shipping. Only thing is no kit detail I went to their IPA kits and they had 5 IPA kits no descriptions atleast written out. This guys might only suit those who are more advance their kit details are as bare and simple as this.

Sandiego IPA:
Yield: 5 gallons, OG: 1.063, FG: 1.016, ABV: 6.1, SRM: 11.3, IBU: 61.9, Ingredients, Light Dry Malt Extract, Crystal Malt, Victory Malt, Centennial Hop, Cascade Hop, 5 oz Priming Sugar, Yeast, Steeping Bag.

Anyone know a website or are able to explain what ABV, SRM IBU means? Would help one deciding what kit to buy on this site. Also any comments about this Brew store good or bad?

ABV is Alcohol by volume. SRM is the color of the beer, the higher number the darker. IBU is international bittering units, or how bitter your beer will be. An IPA will have a higher IBU rate than most beers.
