Default conditioning after carbing

I've had my IPA on tap for two weeks and I think it needs to sit a while before it tastes great. Is ok to take it off the CO2, take it out of the cooler, and let it sit at room temp? Is so, what do I have to be careful of?

if the remaining yeast went dormant instead of dead, you could have bottle-bombs. is it in bottles or kegged? if bottled, best leave it cold

Cool, should I release the pressure in the keg or just take it out of the freezer and let it be?
