I like Chain breaker too. I haven't brewed anything yet, but that is one I want to try soon.

If you're going to brew one, just make a ramped up grain bill for a belgian wit, throw in a ton of citrusy hops for late addition/flameout and then use an american ale yeast (US*05, Wyeast 1056, etc.). I've made this a couple of times and it's great. With that in mind, some of the white IPAs on the market are different. For instance, High Seas White IPA (mentioned earlier) clearly uses a belgian yeast. It's more of a hoppy belgian wit in my opinion. Whereas Deschutes, etc seem to be using an american ale yeast or atleast some sort of hybrid. Anyway, hope this help when you brew one.

I actually thought that a white IPA implies the use of a belgian or weizen yeast. I have a love-hate relationship with HS's riptide - I hate the initial pungent yeast aroma but then love the beer as a whole Would love to brew something similar!

All these sound really interesting. I did manage to find one but it's "with brette" (sp?) so I'm sure it won't be quite what I'm looking for. We bought it anyway to taste. I have tried bevmo and my local Luckys. I'm just unlucky I guess. I'll keep hunting.

The American vs Belgian yeast question is a big reason I want to try a couple different varieties. Thanks everyone
