Might be wrong, but .......
Agreed. A beer that's all hop bitterness is a bit overboard. It's all about balance.
You Get a wheaty, toasty, malty profile and balance that with a huge citrusy floral hop aroma and taste with a leveled bitterness and you've got a world class beer.

I love hops but my girlfriend doesn't. Sometimes I wonder about our food choices, too, and the correlation. She doesn't like spicy food and likes sweet things like soda and candy. I don't eat candy or drink sugary soda and love spicy food and things like salt-and-vinegar potato chips. And I loves me a hoppy beer! (although I do enjoy malty beers, too).

I love beer. I love hops. I love malty non-hoppy beers. I do not judge you by your IBUs.

I hate IPAs and other over hopped beers.

My preferences lean towards the malt complexity as well. I do like hoppy beers but when a choice is available I lean towards the malts. My favorite hoppy beers are ones that have a huge malt backbone behind them like Arrogant Bastard and Double Bastard.

I don't mind the taste of hoppy beers per se, but they bother my stomach. Some of the uber-hopped stuff out there now is just way too much though. Gimme stouts, porters, browns, etc. anyday.

I have zero love for IPA's and their ilk... Git yer HOPS outtah my YERD! [bango music playing in the background]...

I do like some hops in my brews, to give it some balance, but I also tend to lean more towards a malty brew. I also like bigger brews... I do understand that having some hops in there helps to balance the brew. I've been going with the lower half of a style's range of IBU's when brewing... Sometimes, I'm barely into the IBU range of a brew. So far, loving what comes out of the bottles.

Give me an IPA, IIPA, and such, and chances are I'll give it away. Or, I'll cook with it...

I'm generally not a fan of hop bombs, although I love Stone's Sublimely Self Righteous. I do like the flavor of many different hops, I just prefer them when used with a little restraint. I'd rather drink Busch Light than Stone Ruination, although that's an extreme example.

I don't like a hoppy beer either.
