So I have a gift certificate to AHS and an extra packet of safe-ale US-05 American ale yeast. I want to get a kit from AHS and use the yeast I have.

Would this yeast be appropriate for and IPA (like the Stone Ruination IPA)?
If not, what are some styles it would work for?

Thanks for the help!!

It's a clean fermenter that will work with most styles.
