Generic "blue cheese" in the US

When one sees the term "blue cheese" generically used (e.g. "blue cheese dressing", "burger topped with blue cheese", etc) in the US, does anyone know what specific cheese it generally refers to? I realize that blue/bleu cheese can be used to describe any of them but it always seems that at most places this is referring to the same cheese.

Growing up I always thought that I didn't like blue cheese, it turns out that I don't like *this* cheese and I do in fact enjoy many bleu cheeses.
