IHOP Is Changing It's Name. The chain announced on it's Twitter that after 60 years, they will officially be changing the name to IHOB.The International House Of Pancakes will now be the International House Of something else. The restaurant hasn't said what the 'B' will stand for,but Twitter took some guesses. Some guesses were 'bacon', 'burgers', and 'biscuits'. My guess would be 'breakfast'.
