Default Why do we call it "Black" IPA?

IPA is by definition PALE. Shouldn't we come up with a better name? Any ideas?

I like American Dark Ale.

I absolutely adore the beer. Roasty, but not charred, hoppy as hell, with a nice malty backbone. Thinking of doing one with some smoked malt in the spring.

I think there's a new category for american black ale. As opposed to cascadian dark ale. Huge difference. Like the difference between a belgian golden strong ale and a tripel.

Whatever you call it, still one of my favorite styles! Definitely some good ones out there.
