the high alcohol content is a primary contributor to the hotness of the beer. there are other factors but alcohol is a big one, with a little bit of aging this will go away
side note, I had a Mead 12% ABV that was HOT when tasting it...waited a few months, now its smooth and nice, you probably wont have to wait near as long being that the alc content in your IPA isn't near as high.
I love Alcohol, its in my Blood.
