Naive IPA Question

Beer Hounds,

I recently tried the Dogfish 90 minute IPA based on the IPA thread on this board. I did like it, but it raised a question for me. If this is held up as one of the best IPAs out there, is the desired goal of IPAs to be, for lack of a better term, syrupy? Like I said I enjoyed the beer, but it was really strong, not hoppy strong, but kind of thick and sweet strong. Is that unique to Dogfish or is that what a true IPA should be like?
