So a recipe for and IPA would tell percentages for base malt, specialty grains, as well as suggested hops, just as a baseline for the style. Does such a resource exist? If so, where might I find it? If not, does it seem like a topic that could go in the wiki somewhere? I'm interested in formulating recipes, but would prefer to not have to wander around in the proverbial dark.

That's Designing Great Beers by Ray Daniels! I still use it, and refer to it. Although, Ray told me last summer that he is working right now on a revision as it's a bit outdated but I haven't seen that he's completed the revision.
