The Weekly Pint share a similar attitude about IPA's. Note the quote that is part of the headline:
" And while we lament the "IPA-ification" of everything--face it, some styles were just never meant for a makeover..."
The PubScout has been criticized by some diehard hopheads for exactly the same stance, but, as Oscar Wilde once correctly noted, "The only thing worse than being talked about is NOT being talked about."
And the rest of The Weekly Pint's quote (lest I be accused of quoting selectively) is a sentiment with which I also whole-heartedly concur:
"...we salute the ways brewers around the world have taken that once exotic style and produced myriad beers with once unthinkable dimensions."
In any event, read the Weekly Pint article here, ad see if you have ever heard of
--much less tasted--some of these IPA's.
