    Not to pick an argument(!), but I think sometimes humans like to pick a breakwater point when there actually isnt one. I have also always read about isomerisation being above 80C but this seems to...

    Based on that, I would ignore the recommendations in all cases. An IPA will be well past it's prime before you even open your first bottle.
