Regarding IBC root beer bottles: I use 'em all the time, and think they're
great. I had one brew that was **OVERCARBONATED!!**, all in IBC bottles, and
only 2 or 3 of them went boom.
As to your concerns about explosions: covering your bottles with a towel
ought to do it, if they're not enclosed in a cardboard box. I've had a couple
of bottles blow while inside a cardboard case (my very first batch ever), and
all the glass was contained.
On the whole, though: relax, don't worry... well, you know the rest! :-)
Yours in Carbonation,
