Did a BIAB IPA last night and this is what the wort looks like. The cooling method was an ice bath that took 45 minutes.
Is this chill haze?

No that is not chill haze. It is a mixture of yeast, hops, and proteins that form from the hot and cold break. I agree it looks like you have some Starsan in your batch. I learned early swap the blow off tube for a airlock before you cold crash.
Once active fermentation starts you will see all kinds of floating yeast and stiring going on. It's really my favorite part of brewing other than drinking my beer.
After fermenting is complete, I would then cold crash it to below 40 and all of that sediment will drop to the bottom and make a firm cake. You beer should bee pretty clear. If your really want it to be clear then fine with gelatin and you will be very impressed.
