I think the idea is to take your favorite IPA recipe and add just enough dark malt (take your pick of chocolate, black patent, or roasted) to turn it black. Personally I don't care for the style; I'd rather blend a little bit of stout into an IPA. (A local pub has started doing blended beers and one of the best is a rye-pa topped with a splash of breakfast stout. Yum.)

Black or brown food coloring works well to get it nice and dark.

No.

The light roastiness of some malts (midnight wheat, carafa) are PART of the flavor profile of the beer. It should taste different from a regular IPA/IIPA. Otherwise you could add black food coloring to every beer style and create identical-tasting "new" styles. Plus, adding food coloring to beer (outside of St. Pats) is downright offensive.
