    SNAPPY, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale would be my first choice, but since as the name implies, it's listed as a pale ale, I'll go with SN Torpedo (ok it's an Extra IPA whatever that is).

    I'm not chained to any beer and like to try new stuff when buying from a beer store. However, at a restaurant, nothing new, I go local: Smartmouth Notch 9 DIPA or O Connor El Guapo Agave IPA (curse o Connor for retiring Great Dismal Black IPA)

    I thought hard about it and i don't have one cuz i drink an IPA at most every 2 weeks to a month. If i had to pick i wouldn't even know where to start. It would probably be something from El Segundo or i don't know where else...Fremont maybe?

    Lagunitas IPA is a regular of mine because widely available and cheap. You asked for « go-to IPA » not for that overpriced stuff.

    Sumpin Sumpin or SNPA while technically not IPA are and have been go-to of mine for years too.

    Whichever IPA from Brewery X (in Anaheim CA) is currently being carried by the local Trader Joes. They are always good and always extremely fresh. The brewery is only a few miles away, but ya know, I'll drink at home where I can drink from proper glassware instead of those stupid Solo cups at the brewery. #2 is the Kveik IPA from Boulevard. I don't know why, other than the fact that I always like it and it is somewhat different from the multitude of other IPAs.

    It's neck and neck between:
    Fort George - Suicide Squeeze
    Boneyard - RPM IPA

    Depends on mood for the true #1

    If we are talking quick beer run from a grocery store, I always go Bodhi from Columbus Brewing Company or Lunch from Maine Beer Company.

    Torpedo and Voodoo Ranger Imperial, for the hops, taste, and ABV ideal combos.

    Pernicious from Wicked Weed, very good. You Bells Two Hearted fans, try this. Lagunitas IPA and Lil Sumptin are always good safe bets. Also Sierra Nevada Torpedo.
