Looks good to me. Did the recipe have a lot of additions of other stuff besides hops?

My week old very hoppy NEIPA actually looks a bit like that right now. I'm not worried.

Yep, looks like krausen to me. If it was infected, it would have a filmy layer over the top. Do a search for "show your pellicle" to see what those look like.
Not every infected batch gets those, but most do.

Looks fine/within realm of normal.

98% likely that it will be just fine.
