I am wondering because I want to brew these styles of beer myself.

    You can get excellent descriptions of those and many other styles at Beer Advocate: beeradvocate.com/beer/style – Eric Shain Aug 13 at 23:01

    Another great place to understand different styles is bjcp.org/docs/2015_Guidelines_Beer.pdf and you should be asking these beer questions on the homebrew stack exchange because those guys are the real beer geeks. – farmersteve Aug 18 at 5:05

From what I understand, pale ale is not as hoppy as India pale ale. So, quantity of hops in and IBU of IPA’s will be generally higher compared to pale ales. American pale ales use American hops instead of traditionally popular European hops.
