And Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy was delighted with his side's display - even joking that he 'got a bit cold' in the last five minutes.
"That was as good as we have played all season for a number of reasons," McCarthy told BBC Sport.
"We went 1-0 down and had to recover against a team who are playing well. We scored four goals and our all-round performance was very good.
"I actually got a bit cold in the last five minutes. It was nice not to be biting my nails at the end for a change."
Ipswich's Daryl Murphy was a particular subject of praise among fans on Twitter after the game, meanwhile. No wonder - the 31-year-old forward tore Leeds apart, scoring twice and generally putting in a superb display against Neil Redfearn's men.
On top of that, Murphy is now the Championship's top scorer with 13 goals. He proved too much for Leeds on Saturday and Ipswich fans were full of praise for the prolific finisher...

Daryl Murphy is currently one of the most prolific goalscorers in English football. Never thought I'd say that but glad that I can! #itfc— Dan Daws (@DanielDaws1) December 6, 2014
