I was thinking I'd like to do a wheat IPA. For whatever reason, I haven't encountered a recipe for one or heard of a brewer making one. Is there a reason for that (something regarding who a wheat beer with hoppiness would turn out)?

Even if there isn't a recipe, I'd sure like to give it a try all the same.

Also, are there any recipes for hoppy stouts? From what I know, the style has a minimal IBU rating, but I'm just out looking for rebels of beer style.

you can add wheat to pretty much any beer. i usually add some to help with head retention.

I love using wheat in my beers and just brewed a WIPA. I thought it was pretty tasty. I went all simcoe, but i think many varieties work well.

5gal

10lbs 2-row
3lbs wheat
.75lbs crystal 40
.25lbs biscuit
.125lbs chocolate

1oz simcoe @ 60, 10 & 0

US-05

Mashed at 154

OG=1.062
FG=1.012
IBU=68
ABV=6.5

You might try looking at porters. Though the jury is still out on really defining the distinctions between porters and stouts, porters are often hoppy, especially robust porters.
