1028 is awesome and one of the English strains I’ve used the most - but I find it works best in darker beers like porters and stouts, maybe mild. I think Wyeast’s site shows this if you look under that strain at the styles they recommend it for. Under Strong Bitter and English IPA, 1099 is their first recommendation. 1099 is also a great yeast.My favourites are WLP023 and Wyeast 1028. (Both for English IPA's)
The 023 gives a unique flavour which I love.
Please excuse my spelling, but I've never used either of them for an American IPA.
