I'm not 100% anti IAPs, but I really really hate any IAPs related to in-game currency, so I won't buy them - including coin doublers.

100%.
Some games it just feels like you're gaining gold, exp, whatever, at a quarter the pace of what you should. Get the doubler and earn at half the pace. Not for me.
I prefer to support developers that are making reasonably balanced games.
Just to point this out, the worst IAP offenders in the AppStore do not have coin doublers. They see this as potentially hurting their profits. Does EA, zynga, whoever made clash of clans offer doublers? No.

Most games that end up being at least decent and offer these doublers are usually freemium. That doubler is a way to pay for a game that gives you a premium-ish, less grindy feel.

...Unless you think these types of games should just be FREE coz paying for them is cheating.
