I wouldn't really describe most IPA's that Iv'e had as "too bitter", but they are more so what I would consider as an "acquired taste".
I actually think the darker beers that you are describing above are the ones that I would consider bitter.
And I suppose if I were to recommend any beer to the person (Petty) who posted here and said they were burnt out on beer, it would be to stick to the cheap beer you currently drink when you do.
I personally don't drink IPA's that often and view them as more of a treat, but when I do drink them, it's not like I'm slamming them in an effort to get drunk either. IPA's to me are more of a sipping beer than anything.
But if someone is drinking beer just for the pure effect of it, IPA's will get you there rather quickly, and anyone who hasn't ever drank them before should be very careful with them.
They will creep up on you and smack you pretty quickly if your not careful.
