Different yeast strains add different flavors to your beer. The reason you "can't," use your wyeast IPA yeast in, say, a stout is the same reason you "can't," use chocolate malt in your IPA. Nothing is stopping you from doing so, but the flavor of your finished beer would be very much out of style.

You could absolutely use WLP023 on an IPA and be within style guidelines, it is perhaps one of the best strains for English IPAs. There is nothing to say that you couldn't throw a bunch of American C-hops in there for a nice IPA as well.
