Yeah, corn sugar can be an essential ingredient especially in double IPAís. Itís a simple sugar that helps a beer attenuate lower to achieve a dryer finish and lighter mouthfeel despite a higher ABV. The recipe for Pliny the Elder uses quite a bit of it in place of base malt.
Nothing wrong with using corn sugar in a recipe as long as itís in the right context.
