Balance in a west coast IPA means your hop flavor and hop aroma are balanced with your hop bitterness.....at least to me anyway.

Interesting way to look at it. Unfortunately, I think most people are talking about achieving a balance of hop bitterness with malt sweetness, or hop flavor with malt flavor. American IPAs/IIPAs are innately bitter and hop forward. The beauty about them is a perfection of un-balance. If you want balance, go with an ESB.
